Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions


Those patients who take medication regularly will be given a repeat prescription printout with each prescription. When you wish to repeat a prescription tick the relevant items on the printout and return it to reception, either by hand or post. There is a box in reception that you can put your requests in.

If you would like us to post it back to you, please enclose a stamped addressed envelope. If for some reason you do not have the printout, write your request clearly in block capitals. Include your name, date of birth, address and telephone number and either post it, put it through our letterbox or hand it in at reception. Please destroy all old repeat forms and use only the current one.

Allow THREE CLEAR WORKING DAYS for your request to be processed, SEVEN if requesting by post. If you require additional items, which are not included on your printout, your prescription may be subject to delay.

Your doctor needs to review your treatment periodically and will ask you to attend the surgery when this is necessary.

If you want to order your medication online please go to the "Online Access" tab on the top left hand side. This will take you to the log in page. You will need to register at the surgery for a username and password before you can use this service. Please bring in photo ID or birth certificate with you at the same time so we can verify your identity.
