If you need regular prescriptions and your doctor does not need to see you every time you may be given a repeat prescription. These are normally printed by the computer and with each prescription there is an attached reorder form. When you need further repeats, please tick the items required and put the form in the box provided in the surgery or post through the letter box. 48 hours’ notice is required. If you supply a stamped, addressed envelope, we will be happy to post the prescription to you.
If you are on repeat medication and you reach your maximum number of issues, please note that you must make an appointment to be seen by either our practice nurse or a doctor for a medication review before a further prescription can be issued.
Patients must be responsible in ensuring that their medication does not run out before they can obtain the next supply – we cannot get prescriptions written out and signed before 48 hours’ notice. Please note: if posted through the door at the weekend, the prescription may not be ready until Wednesday morning, ie 48 hours from the working day. We do not accept requests by telephone – this leaves our lines free for urgent matters and prevents dangerous errors being made.
