You can order your repeat prescription by:
- ordering online at any time
- arranging with a chemist to place the order on your behalf
- in person by leaving your request in the prescription box on the reception desk during opening hours
- posting it to the surgery. Tick the items you need on the right-hand section of your previous prescription form.
Please ensure that you give us at least 2 working days (not including Saturday or Sunday) to prepare your prescription. A further 5 working days may be required for the medication to be dispensed by your chosen pharmacy.
If you are posting your request please remember to take the postal time into account before collecting, we can post it back to you if you would prefer however you will need to provide use with a stamped, addressed envelope.
If you have made arrangements with your regular chemist to pick up your prescription on your behalf, they will usually have it dispensed ready for you to pick up from them. In some circumstances they may also offer a delivery service. Please talk to your chemist if you would like more information.
To obtain a password to enable you to order your prescription on line, please speak to a receptionist, who will be pleased to help. Please allow at least 1 hour between the receptionist giving you a password, and attempting to log on. You will be requested to change your password the first time you log on.
We are keen to ensure that patients with on going medical problems are monitored regularly. The date of your next review is show on the right tear off portion, attached to your prescription. If a chemist picks up your prescription from the practice, please ensure they return the right side to you when you collect it. If the date for your next review with a doctor or nurse has passed you will be asked to make an appointment. To continue to receive repeat medication you must attend for a medication review.
