How to request your repeat prescription
If you need to take regular medication, your doctor will issue repeat prescriptions. Computer-produced repeat prescription requests are issued with your repeat prescription.
To re-order your medication please:
- Order online
- complete the slip and return it to the surgery. Where possible, please submit your repeat slip in time as we will need two working days to process your order.
- You may collect your prescription from the surgery or, if a stamped self-addressed envelope is enclosed with your repeat slip, we will be happy to post your prescription to you.
Your pharmacist may also need to order in your medicine before he can dispense it, so give yourself plenty of time to order so as not to run out.
Alternatively, the local chemist will arrange for it to be collected from the surgery – please ask your chemist for details.
We no longer accept telephone requests for repeat prescriptions as this can cause clogging of our telephone lines, preventing more urgent calls getting through. Moreover, taking verbal requests over the phone can lead to problems and disputes over medication. We therefore respectfully ask that prescription requests are submitted using the re-order slip.
The doctor will wish to review your medication at least every year. Please therefore make an appointment for a medication review at least annually. If you have been advised by the surgery that your medication review is due please use our online form.
Remember that we are closed over the weekend and bank holidays, so please ensure you have sufficient medication.
Prescribing Drugs of Addiction
The practice has specific GPs to prescribe such drugs and, where necessary, patients will be referred to a specialist centre for management of their addiction.
