Repeat Prescriptions

If you need medication on a regular basis your doctor may have allowed you to request these in the future as repeat prescriptions without necessarily attending for a consultation.

If you require a change to your medication then you should arrange a routine appointment with your doctor to discuss this. The receptionist staff are not medically trained and are therefore not allowed to prescribe medication or alter prescriptions – please do not ask them.

Manage your appointments and request repeat prescriptions online. Patient Access is available to ALL our registered patients.

You can request a repeat prescription by using the perforated tear off repeat request that was attached to your last prescription or a note with your details and the medication required. You are now able to request prescriptions on line. Please ask at reception for details. We do not accept prescription requests over the telephone. Please allow TWO CLEAR WORKING DAYS (48 hours) for us to deal with your request.

You are now able to order your repeat prescriptions on-line.  Please ask at the reception desk of any of the surgeries.

The practice now uses the Electronic Prescribing System – This means you can allocate a chemist of your choice for your prescriptions to be sent to electronically. YOU do need to sign up for this service either at the surgery or at a chemist. For more information on the Electronic Prescribing System, please click on button shown below.

You may post your requests with an enclosed stamped addressed envelope if you wish us to return it to you by post.

Private prescriptions cannot be converted into NHS prescriptions.

All patients on repeat medication will be asked to have a medication review at least every 3-12 months with a date set by the prescribing doctor according to the patient’s clinical condition.
