If you need to take medication on a regular basis, your doctor may decide to issue you with repeat prescriptions. This will remove the necessity for you to be seen every time you need a fresh supply of medicines.
How do I order my Repeat Prescription?
Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
- Online – Using our Repeat Prescription Requests triage
- Using our online services – Patient Access
- In person – Post the tear-off slip indicating the medication you require to the surgery, enclosing a stamped self-addressed envelope. If posting please remember to give at least one weeks notice for a first class stamp and longer if using second class. The post box is next to the main reception entrance.
- By post – You can tick your requirements on the repeat slip and put it in the box on the reception desk. If the surgery is closed, please use the external post box next to the main reception entrance.
In order to minimise errors, repeat medication requests are not accepted over the phone (unless housebound).
When will my Prescription be ready?
All requests take 2 working days to action. We can post prescriptions if you leave with us a stamped addressed envelope.
Please request repeat prescriptions well in advance of public holidays.
