Please allow 48 hours for processing your repeat request and collecting your medication from your pharmacist. Do not let your medication run too low, you can order your monthly prescription from up to one week before it is due again.
If you require your medication any earlier than one week in advance, please contact reception.
When you need to re-order, just circle the items required only.
Please advise our surgery staff if there are items on your repeat prescription that you are no longer taking. If you do re-order by post and would like the new prescription returned to you, you must enclose a stamped addressed envelope. If you mislay your repeat medication request, you can request on a plain piece of paper, with your name, date of birth, address and the items you require.
You can also arrange for your pharmacist to collect your prescription for you and have it made up ready for you to collect. Please contact your pharmacist to arrange this service. Note from 1st July 2016 the surgery will not accept prescription requests directly from the chemist. Patients are required to order their own items directly from the surgery.
Most medications are authorised for up to one year before you have to see a doctor again to obtain your medication.
Patients who have access to the Internet on their home computers are now able to order their repeat prescriptions online via the link at the top of this page.
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.
Some medication requires you to have an annual blood check or other tests before the doctor will re-authorise a further year’s supply. If such a test is due you may find your prescription has a form attached informing you of any tests which you may need to be carried out prior to your appointment with the doctor to re-authorise your medication.
