If you need regular medication the doctor will arrange this through the practice computer system. Please ask a member of staff for details.
If you require repeat prescriptions, please allow at least 48 hours for your prescriptions to be processed.
Requests for repeat prescriptions should be made using the order form printed with every repeat prescription and should be handed into the surgery or sent by post. If you wish, prescriptions will be returned to you by post, but please enclose a stamped, self addressed envelope with the repeat request. You may also order repeat prescriptions via this website.
Requests for repeat prescriptions are not taken over the telephone as errors can occur in verbal communication. You should see your doctor at least once a year to discuss your medication. Urgent requests for prescriptions cannot be dealt with during surgery times when both doctors and staff are busy as there is potential for errors to occur. This is due to the volume of prescriptions we receive each day and there are also medical legal reasons why doctors cannot be disturbed during their surgery.
You may request medication which is not on your repeat medication list either by writing this on your repeat medication slip, a special request form available at reception or by using our online service. In this case one of the doctors will consider whether there is enough information to decide whether the medication is appropriate, and if it is then a prescription may be issued. Medication requested in this way will NOT be issued automatically however and patients are asked to check with reception to see whether their request has been issued or not.
