When you need to take medicines regularly the doctor or nurse may put them on repeat prescription. If so you will then have a tear off slip listing these medicines. You can request further supplies by ticking the items you require and either:
- posting the slip to the practice, either for collecting or with a stamped address envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
- dropping the slip in for collection.
- handing the slip to one of the local pharmacies who will arrange to collect the prescription on your behalf
- Alternatively you can now order online by carrying out a simple registration - click on the 'order your repeat prescriptions on line' link above for further information.
If you require further advice please ask at reception. Please note that prescriptions cannot be ordered by telephone.
Please do not order repeat perscriptions unless you actually need them. Only tick the items on your repeat slip which you actually require.
Remember, the pharmacists can give you lots of advice about your medicines.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor or practice nurse at 6-12 month intervals, (dependant on medication and how the problem is controlled), to review these regular medications.
Please allow a full 48 hours (excluding weekends and bank holidays) between requesting and collecting your prescription.
