Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions

Important notice: From 1st February 2018, pharmacies, online pharmacies, and suppliers of medical appliances will no-longer be able to order repeat prescriptions on your behalf.

You will need to order your repeat prescription directly from the GP surgery every time.

Click here for further details.

Patients on repeat prescriptions will be automatically issued with a white re-order slip whenever they obtain a prescription. This should be torn off and used to re-order a new prescription by ticking the box next to the item(s) required. If you do not have this slip, please ask reception staff.  Please note that we do not accept prescription requests over the telephone, except in an emergency.  Alternatively you can order repeat prescriptions via the Online Service.

If you need the prescription posting to you, please enclose an SAE with your re-order slip.

You can also arrange for your chosen pharmacist to collect and dispense your prescriptions for you (known as the Electronic Prescription Service) please click the picture link below for further details:-

Please note repeat prescriptions for the oral contraceptive will not be issued without seeing a nurse for a check-up. Please make sure you make an appointment before you run out.

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.
