Repeat prescriptions are generated by computer, subject to your written (using the white section of your exiting prescription or by completing the repeat prescription request form available in the reception area of the surgery) or online request.
In order to be able to request your repeat prescription online, via the link at the top of this page, you must register for this service in person at the surgery. Read more
To avoid errors, we ask receptionists not to take prescription requests over the telephone.
We work with a number of local chemists who collect prescriptions from us daily or every other day, who will deliver your prescribed medication to you. This is subject to a contractual arrangement between you and the chemist. It is your responsibility to agree this arrangement. Once agreed you should inform the reception staff of that arrangement as you should if it changes.
You may send your prescription request by post including a stamped address envelope, however the practice cannot take any repsonsibility for delayed or lost post by Royal Mail.
Alternatively you may pick up your prescription from the surgery in person within 48 hours of submitting your request.
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.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
