Repeat Prescriptions

In light of the Coronavirus please do not come to the surgery to request your repeat medication. Requests should be made on line or by telephone.

Patients are no longer able to order your medication via their pharmacy or any nominated 3rd Party unless approved to do so by the Practice.

blue_pillsRepeat prescription request slips may be handed in or posted to the surgery. Your prescription will be ready for you within 10 days. Alternatively, if you supply a stamped addressed envelope, we will forward your prescription to you.

Please mark clearly on your request the items that you require.

It is also possible to request your repeat medication on line, via the link at the top of this page, once you have registered with the practice for on line access.

 

The facility for requesting a repeat prescription by telephone is available to housebound patients and may be arranged after discussion with one of the doctors, the reception manager or practice manager.

Please only request medication that you require. If you do not require an item please do not order it. Sometimes, your doctor or the hospital may alter your repeat medication. It is important, therefore, that patients should keep no more than one month's supply of medication at any time. All medicines carry expiry dates. If you find that the date on your medication has expired, please dispose of this safely.

Generic Medicines

You may find that the name of your medication has been altered on your prescription and your repeat slip. If this happens it is most probably that the doctor has changed your medication from the brand name to the chemical (generic) name for that particular drug in accordance with practice policy. There should be no difference in the drug itself and you should not notice any difference. However, should you wish to discuss this with your doctor, please make an appointment in the usual way.

Medication Reviews

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.

48_hours.jpgPlease allow 10 full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
