Prescriptions

Please allow 2 working days for your repeat prescriptions to be processed.  Please help us by not waiting to your last tablet to request a repeat.  All requests must be made in writing.

Prescription requests can be made using the tick slip attached to your paper prescription, in writing either by post or handed in at reception, in our  online.

We do not accept telephone requests for repeat prescriptions in order to avoid errors that occur with this means of communication.

Collections

If you enclose a stamped addressed envelope we will post the prescription to you.  You can also request your prescription to be forwarded to a nominated chemist (to conform to the Data Protection Act we will need this request in writing).

Repeat Dispensing

If you are currently stable on 4 or less repeat medications Repeat Dispensing may be for you. Pick up a leaflet from Reception or speak to the Prescription Clerk for more information.

Medication Reviews

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.
