Repeat Prescriptions

Telephone requests will only be taken from patients who are housebound, elderly or terminally ill. These requests will only be taken between 13:00 - 14:00. Please ring your surgery number. script

Repeat prescriptions should be requested in writing. You will have a pre-printed tear off slip attached to your prescription; please use this. A minimum of 48 hours notice should be given before your medicines are due to run out.

Please mark your request slip clearly with a tick against the items you require. If you wish for your prescription to be posted back to you, please include a stamped addressed envelope with your request. You will be informed when you hand in your request when to pick up your prescription.

Most repeat medications require regular review; this is to ensure that the prescribed medication continues to be appropriate, necessary, effective and safe. Your repeat slip will be highlighted if you need a review before a particular item can be re-issued. Please make an appointment to see a P/Nurse before you run out of medication. Our Practice Nurses can do Asthma, Hypertension, Heart Disease, Diabetes, Weight management & Contraceptive reviews.

Short notice repeat requests are issued at the doctors' discretion. You may be issued with a small supply of medication until the next available appointment.
