Please order repeat prescriptions on the printed request form provided at the chemist when you collect your medication. This can then be:
- posted to the surgery
- placed in the repeat prescription box on the reception desk or the surgery's external letter box or
- handed in at your local chemist (who will return it to us)
Alternatively you can order online via the link at the top of this page. Patients new to the service will need to register first. You can also use eConsult - please see Home page for more information.
Please note we DO NOT accept telephone requests for prescription items
Your repeat prescription will be ready for collection either at our Reception desk or at the local pharmacy of your choice after 3pm three working days after we receive this request. We are unable to process requests more quickly due to the volume of prescriptions we deal with on a daily basis.
As a patient it is your responsibility to make sure that you submit your request while you still have sufficient medication to last you because we are unable to provide prescriptions urgently, except in exceptional circumstances. If an urgent request for medication is made, you will need to fill in a urgent prescription request form and a clinician will decide whether this is necessary.
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.
Electronic prescribing is now available.This service will change the way we send your prescriptions to the Pharmacy.
Once you have nominated a chosen Pharmacy we will electronically send the prescription to them.
Ordering your medications will not change, only the process of the Pharmacy obtaining the prescription from us.
