PLEASE NOTE WE DO NOT ACCEPT TELEPHONE REQUESTS FOR REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS.
Repeat Prescriptions may be ordered using the ‘tear-off’ slip from your last prescription.
You can hand this in at reception, post or fax it to the practice, or alternatively use the local pharmacy prescription ordering service.
You can also order your prescriptions on-line via the link at the top of this page if this is more convenient, please ask at Reception if you would like any help to register for this service.
Telephone requests will only be accepted from those patients who are genuinely housebound (please phone after 11.00am for routine requests).
We require at least 48 hours notice to prepare repeats, so please think ahead when you are getting low.
Prescriptions may be collected at the surgery, returned by post (a S.A E. is required), or they may be collected at a local pharmacy specified by you. Some pharmacies do not collect prescriptions from the surgery every day, so please ensure they know to expect your prescription.
Occasionally you may notice that an item has run out of repeats. If you have not been seen recently (usually within a year) you may be required to attend the surgery for a review of your medication. No patient, however, will be left without necessary medication, and a small amount may be issued until you can be seen by a doctor.
