Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions can  be requested electronically or in writing, please ask at reception about registering for online prescription requests. (some medications may be restricted from electronic request/issue)

We also now offer prescriptions to be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your nomination, please ask at reception for more information on this service.

A minimum of 48 hours notice should be given before your medicines are due to run out.

If you wish for your prescription to be posted back to you, please provide a stamped addressed envelope with your request. You will be informed when you hand in your request when to pick up your prescription.

Most repeat medications require regular review; this is to ensure that the prescribed medication continues to be appropriate, necessary, effective and safe. Your repeat slip will be highlighted if you need a review before a particular item can be re-issued. Please make an appointment to see a P/Nurse before you run out of medication. Our Practice Nurses can do Asthma, Hypertension, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Weight management & Contraceptive reviews.

Short notice repeat requests are issued at the doctors' discretion. You may be issued with a small supply of medication until the next available appointment. Telephone requests for repeat prescriptions will only be taken for elderly & housebound patients.
