Repeat Prescriptions

As you may be aware the practice is under a lot of pressure and to relieve some of that pressure we would like to enable your prescriptions to go directly to a Pharmacy of your choice.

Once you have placed your order in your usual way, your prescription will then be sent directly to the Pharmacy where you can collect when ready or arrange to have it delivered. If you order repeat medication could you please respond to this message with the name and address of the Pharmacy you regularly use so we can update our records.

multicolour_pillsWhen you request a prescription please use the computer-generated list from your last prescription.  If you do not have this, please ask reception for a repeat prescription form to complete. 

You can request your repeat prescriptions by:

  • Post - enclosing a stamped, addressed envelope if you wish us to post your prescription back.
  • Hand delivered - we have a box in reception area to avoid you having to queue at the reception desk.

Alternatively you can order online. New users are required to complete a simple registration document.

Housebound Patients

If you are housebound and cannot get your repeat prescription request to the surgery, please contact your surgery reception on the numbers below and they will be happy to process your prescription over the telephone. This service is only for housebound patients.

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 your regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays in processing further prescriptions.

Symbol Error 3Please allow 72 hours for repeat prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and Bank Holidays into account. Collections can be made after 10:30. Urgent requests for urgent prescriptions only will be ready to be collected on the same day providing a doctor is available to sign them.
