Prescription forms for medicine that is intended to be prescribed repeatedly have a tear-off slip listing the items intended for repeat use. The easiest way of doing this is through our online service (please see below).
You can obtain a repeat prescription by returning the tear-off slip to the Surgery (in person or by post). We aim to provide your repeat prescription within 48 hours of your request.
If you would like your prescription sent to you, please enclose a stamped, addressed envelope with your prescription request.
Please help the surgery by requesting your medication online. You can request both repeat and acute prescriptions as well as making custom requests via the 'Medication Request Notes' box. This can save time for you, our reception and our Doctors.
You can now order repeat prescriptions online, once you have been registered for this service. Please contact us to request to register, and allow 24 hours after receiving your login details before trying to log in online.
You can also use the service to request repeat prescriptions for family members if you have their permission. Our reception team will be able to guide you through the process.
Each repeat prescription item has a review date, which is decided by your doctor when the medication is first prescribed. The prescription will be reviewed by your doctor on a regular basis, and no further prescriptions will be issued after the review date has passed unless you have reviewed the medication with your doctor. It is important to review your medication to check if it is still needed, and if it is working as it should. We will also check that you are not having side effects, arrange any tests that are needed to monitor the effects, and check that nothing better could be used instead. Your medication should be reviewed at least once a year, and more frequently for some medication.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
