Repeat prescriptions

Please allow two full working days’ notice for all repeat prescriptions

If you are on long term medication you will be given a computerised prescription re-order slip. This allows you to re-order medication without seeing the Doctor every time. We regret that requests for repeat prescriptions will not be accepted over the telephone. as this can lead to mistakes. Patients may also order their repeat medication via the internet. Please ask at Reception for more details about how to sign up or download our Patient online Access Leaflet and the application form here Patient On-line Registration Form If you cannot access the leaflet and form, contact the surgery for assistance.

After twelve repeats (or as otherwise decided by your Doctor) you will be required to see your Doctor for review to ensure all is well before further prescriptions are issued.

The re-order prescription slip requires you to tick off the items you require and the slip should then be returned to the surgery two working days before you require your prescription. Alternatively you can post it to us, enclosing a stamped addressed envelope, and we will post the prescription back to you. (Please allow a further two days for the postal delay).

Prescriptions can be collected from the surgery or collected by the local chemist of your choice.

In the event or a patient running out of essential medication when the surgery is closed. they should telephone 01797 223230 and they will be tranferred to the Emergency Out of Hours Doctor.
