Your doctor may decide to issue you with repeat prescriptions.
In this practice medical records are computerised, and your regular medication will be listed.
Patients will be issued with a printed prescription which is signed by the doctor and a printed copy, which is then used to re-order medications.
Please tick the items you require. If a medicine you normally take is not on your prescription copy please print the name and dose in block letters.
We are unable to take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.
Please allow 48 hours for the prescriptions to be processed.
Prescriptions may be posted back to you - please remember to include a stamped addressed envelope and allow extra time for postage.
Arrangements can be made for your prescription to be delivered to a local chemist. Please ask reception for a list of chemists that collect from our surgeries.
Repeat prescriptions need to be reviewed on a regular basis and the doctor may request to see you in order to update your medication list and carry out annual health checks.
Please make your prescription requests in writing
