If you need regular medication on prescription your doctor will usually organise a repeat prescription for you. This can then be ordered at set intervals without seeing the doctor in person. If you are a new patient to the practice, we will need to see you in person first to arrange this service.
Repeat prescriptions are normally issued on a monthly basis and can be ordered between 11:00 to 12:30 and 13:30 to 17:00. Please telephone our main surgery line and select option 2 to be transferred. Alternatively, you can make your request in person, by post or online via the link at the top of this page.
The current most effective way to manage your repeat prescription is by having access to our Online Services - please contact reception if you are not set up for this already.
PLEASE ORDER YOUR REPEAT MEDICATION IN ADVANCE - we operate on a 48 hour turnaround for requests. The practice is NOT able to take requests for SAME DAY REPEAT MEDICATION.
Collecting your Medication
Once completed, you can collect your medication from your nominated pharmacy - please check their policies on how long it takes them to dispense the medication once they have received the prescription.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
