By using our repeat prescribing system, you can save time, but not having to come in to see a doctor each and every time you run out of prescriptions.
We can take repeat prescription requests in person at the surgery, by email, by fax, or by post. We do not take repeat prescription requests by phone.
If you look at your prescription, you will see a list of your repeat medications on the right-hand side.
All you need to do is tick the ones you want and hand this in at the reception
Each request for repeat medication is reviewed by a doctor. If he or she feels that the request needs to be discussed, he or she may call you, or ask you to attend to see a doctor.
Not all medications will be available for you to ‘tick’ on the repeat side of your prescription.
Please allow 72 hours for your repeat prescription (not including weekends)
Alternatively why not try our on-line repeat prescription service which is usually only a 48 hour turnaround? Please ask at reception for details
If you feel that the prescription is urgent, please tell the receptionist when you hand in the script – please try to plan ahead ; urgent requests reduce the efficacy of the service, and use up valuable doctor time.
For housebound patients many of the local pharmacies offer a home delivery service and we are happy to liaise directly with them.
If you have a long-term chronic condition, which is well controlled, we may well be happy to issue longer prescriptions of upto 3 months. Please discuss this with your doctor at your next appointment.
Last, but by no means least – all patient who are on any medications, will need to be reviewed at least once a year. Please do not be surprised if you are asked to come in for an annual review by the surgery.
