If you take medication regularly your doctor may suggest that you can order it as a repeat prescription. You can request a repeat prescription using the methods below:
- Handing in your request slip at reception or putting it in the prescription box at reception (or using the box on the wall outside the building when we are closed)
- Posting your request slip to us
- Using a local pharmacy's request service
To avoid mistakes and to ease telephone congestion WE DO NOT TAKE REPEAT PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS OVER THE TELEPHONE. Please help us by ordering your prescription in good time; allow at least 72 working hours (3 full working days) for your prescription to be fully processed and do not ask staff to process these more quickly as we do not have the resources to do so.
REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS CANNOT BE ISSUED MORE THAN 10 DAYS BEFORE THEY ARE DUE, AS THEY WILL BE REJECTED. SHOULD YOU NEED YOUR REPEAT MEDICATION BEFORE THIS, CALL AND SPEAK TO THE PRESCRIBING CLERK, OR BRING IN A LETTER STATING WHY, EG HOLIDAY.
When you receive your prescription you may be asked to make an appointment with the doctor or practice nurse. This is to check your current state of health and make sure that no change to your medication is needed. Please do not ignore these messages as it may cause delays when you next need medication if you have not made the appointment as requested.
We have a prescribing clerk available between 8.30am - 12.30pm Monday to Friday who can answer all queries on prescriptions. Choose option 3 on the phone to go straight through to the prescribing clerk. She will NOT take requests for repeat prescriptions over the phone as previously detailed but she can answer queries about missing items or changes to repeat prescriptions.
Repeat Prescription Form
To request a repeat prescription, please enter your personal details below, followed by the name, strength and quantity of medication you require. Please allow at least 72 hours before visiting your collection point.
We can only process requests for repeat prescriptions - if you require a new medication you will need to book an appointment, to speak to one of our doctors on the telephone.
This will be monitored Monday to Friday, 8.30am to 12pm.
DO NOT USE FOR URGENT PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS.
