Repeat Prescriptionsblue_yellow

You can request a repeat prescription in the following ways:

  • Hand in or post the tear off slip from your repeat prescription form 
  • Use our secure online request form via the link at the top of this page

Please note we now no longer accept direct emails or telephone calls for prescription requests unless there are exceptional circumstances as agreed by a GP.

Please check your medication stocks regularly as urgent 'same day' requests continue to occur and place a considerable strain on what is already a busy system, only certain drugs will be considered for urgent requests.

Please note that if you run out of your repeat medication, in many cases the local pharmacist can provide an emergency supply until your request can be processed in the normal manner by the practice.

 We respectfully remind all patients that maintaining your supply of medication is your own personal responsibility.

 

All medications on repeat prescription need to be reviewed at least annually by the doctors. You may receive a request to come in for a review. Similarly, we may indicate to you that you require something else (e.g. blood pressure or cholesterol review) and we would be grateful if you could make an appointment if requested to do so. 

Collections

To ensure you have a sufficient supply of all your repeat prescriptions please request your next prescription in plenty time.

Please also specify clearly whether you wish to collect the prescription from the Health Centre or from the local pharmacy.

The table below sets out the minimum timescales from handing in a request until collecting the prescription.

 Please be aware that these timescales are a just a guide - some medications need to be ordered by a pharacist and will take a little longer.

 Please also bear in mind that in the run up to Christmas local pharmacies can be extremely busy and these timescales can become streatched.
