The system of issuing repeat prescriptions is safe and effective, but requires your co-operation.
You will need to consult the doctor for all other prescriptions.
We are keen to ensure that patients with ongoing medical problems are monitored regularly. If the date for your next review with a doctor or nurse has passed you will be asked to make an appointment.
To avoid blocking line for urgent calls repeat prescriptions are not accepted over the telephone. Requests should be made in person to the surgery and the prescription will be ready for collection 48 hours later after 2pm. If you have difficulty in collecting your prescription the pharmacies offer a repeat ordering service which allows them to order on your behalf, collect from the surgery and deliver it to you. Please enquire at your preferred pharmacy.
Requests for prescriptions can also be made on line using My Health Online If you do not already have a My Health Online account with the practice please ask at reception for the application form.
We are unable to issue repeat prescriptions at weekends, public holidays or out of normal surgery hours.
Please allow two complete working days before collection and make allowances for weekends and public holidays. To avoid queues at the reception desk the practice can send your prescription to your chemist of choice, please advise receptionist when ordering prescription for relevant form of authority. Where possible, please give exact drug names when ordering.
