Repeat Prescriptions 

                    Pills

Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:

·         In person - drop your repeat slip in at reception with the required items clearly marked. 

·         By post - send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.

·         Online follow the link at the top of this page to complete a simple registration.

To order your medication online, you will need to register to obtain a pin number and set your password.  Click here to create an account  or alternatively you can collect your pin number from the surgery receptionist.

 

Prescription request over the telephone is not acceptable on as mistakes are more likely to happen.

You may have arranged with your doctor for your prescription to be renewed without seeing him/her every time.  If this is the case, you will find a list of your repeat medication attached to the right hand side of your prescription.  You will need to tick the items requested on the list.  The slip should be left in the request box on reception.

Please do not ask your doctor for repeat medication during your consultation. 

Electronic Prescription Service

We also offer the Electronic Prescription Service, which allows you to choose or "nominate" a pharmacy to get your medicines or appliances from. Your GP then sends your prescription electronically to the place you nominated. this means:

      • If you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription, saving time.
      • You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.
      • You may not have to wait as long as your repeat prescriptions could be prepared before you arrive.

You will need to tick the items requested on the list, which can be found on the right side of your prescription. The slip should be left in the request box in reception.

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

 

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year 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.
