Repeat prescriptions are only authorised by doctor if you have consulted, understood and agreed to abide by the rules of the repeat prescription scheme and with regular attendance to the doctor or hospital.
To request a repeat prescription please tick the required items on the prescription slip and then hand the slip in at reception, or drop it into surgery letterbox or post it to the surgery or you can request your medication online (requests will not be accepted by telephone or fax or issued in appointment times). Please allow 48 working hours prior to collection.
If you cannot collect the prescription yourself, or arrange for someone to collect it on your behalf, it can be posted to you if you provide a stamped addressed envelope, please allow extra time for this.
Alternatively your local pharmacist may be willing to request and collect your prescription from the surgery on your behalf, please ask your pharmacist about this service. Please note the surgery will request written consent before giving your prescriptions to any pharmacist.
New patients please note: When you require a “repeat” of the medication given to you by your previous GP, please make an appointment with your new Doctor in the first instance and bring the box which contains your current treatment and your prescription side slip.
Please bring any medication (over-the-counter and prescribed) you are taking with you to every appointment. The doctors regularly review patients who are on long-term medication to ensure that patients are on the most appropriate treatment and to ensure that any monitoring needed is done for patient’s safety. It is important that you come to surgery for monitoring when requested as we may not be able to continue to prescribe your medicines safely.
