Repeat prescriptions

If you are on regular medication, you will have a repeat prescription slip given to you.  Requests are made by handing the slip in the reception, posting to the surgery or by putting in the post/letter box or by ordering online.  If you do not have a slip, please write down your request, including your name, address and medication required request forms available at reception.

Please do not phone us for your repeat medication.

Your doctor will review your medication at regular intervals.

Please note that the surgery offers Electronic prescribing (EPS) please nominate which preferred chemist you would like for this service for any other enquiries please ask at reception.

Some pharmacists provide a collection and delivery service – please speak to your local chemist for more information.

Repeat prescription will not be issued during consultations, morning or evening.  Please order repeat medication, giving 48 hours, at the reception desk. In genuine emergencies only, doctor will issue one week only and regular repeat must be ordered in the usual manner.

PLEASE ALLOW 48 HOURS BEFORE COLLECTION .  YOU HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO ORDER YOUR MEDICATION IN TIME

We are keen to ensure that patients with ongoing medical problems are monitored regularly. If the date for your next review with a doctor or nurse has passed you will be asked to make an appointment.
