By telephone - we now also accept repeat prescription requests over the phone. All we ask of you is that you:
- Phone after 10:00 as before then our receptionists are very busy with appointment bookings.
- You have the names of the required medication available, we will not be able to accept requests for repeat medication unless you know the name.
Please note we can only accept requests for medication if your GP has put this on repeat for you.
By Repeat Dispensing
Instead of ordering your script from the surgery you can go straight to your high street pharmacist to collect your medication for 6 or 12 months, dependant on your condition. Suitable for patients on stable medication who do not require reviews more than every 6 months such as; raised BP treatment, diabetes, thyroid replacement etc. Please ask for details.
Please note that in normal circumstances we require 2 working days to process repeat prescription requests; e.g. requests for repeat prescriptions delivered to the surgery on a Friday will not be available until the Tuesday afternoon the following week.
If there is a query with your request you may need to allow more time, i.e. 3 or more working days. The receptionist will advise you if there are likely to be any problems. This is because your doctor may not be at the practice to look at your request on the day that you bring it to the surgery.
If a stamped addressed envelope is provided with your request slip, we will post your prescription to you, but please allow enough time for this before your medication runs out. The local chemist is also able to collect your prescription for you. Please ask for details.
Did you know that the local high street pharmacies offer a Prescription Collection Service? - ask at the Pharmacy for further details.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
