Repeat prescriptions can be ordered in different ways:
- by completing the right-hand section of your previous prescription form and either leaving it at the surgery in the ‘Repeat Prescriptions Box’
- or sending it to us by post (please enclose a stamped addressed envelope for us to return it to you)
- You can also order repeat prescriptions online via Patient Access.
For your own safety this practice does not accept medication requests by telephone.
Allow two working days for us to process your request, including those prescribed by Hospital Consultants, and a further period for the Pharmacist to make up your medication.
If you have arranged to use the Electronic Prescription Service, your prescription will be sent electronically to the Pharmacy you have nominated. Click here to find out more on the EPS procedure on the NHS website here.
We are keen to ensure that patients with ongoing medical problems are monitored regularly. If the date for your next review with a doctor or nurse has passed you will be asked to make an appointment.
You need to register to use our online repeat prescription ordering service and this is best done in person at the surgery. Please speak to one of our receptionists.
The Practice has a duty of care to ensure that the medications you are taking are still appropriate for you, even if you are under a Consultant at the Hospital. A review can be carried out by a clinical pharmacist, doctor or nurse practitioner and needs to be carried out every year. Your review date is always printed on your prescription form. You should make an appointment before the date of the review in order to avoid delays in getting further medications.
