Repeat Prescriptions - Please register for online access.
Ordering your prescription online provides a safer, quicker service for you. Online requests avoid potential medication errors. This will save you time and money as you will not need to make a special trip to the surgery to order your prescription. You can also nominate a chemist for your prescription to be sent to directly.
In order to use this service you must complete an application form that can be obtained at the reception desk.
We cannot accept requests over the telephone.
Two full working days notice are required for repeat prescriptions. Three full days for new or altered prescriptions.
The NHS hospital contract states that your hospital doctor is responsible for providing you with a prescription when you attend outpatients. Some consultants may not do this which creates a delay before we get their letter and can add the medication to your list. Please ask them to provide you with a prescription at your appointment.
Patients on repeat medication may be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
