If you are on long term medication, we have a system which allows you to obtain a number of repeats without seeing your doctor. After an interval agreed with your doctor, you will be asked to make an appointment for a check up. The purpose will be to monitor your condition and to ensure that you are taking the most effective treatment and to check that your current dosage is still the most appropriate.

It is very important that you attend for your medication check ups with your GP

In accordance with national guidelines, we usually prescribe a 28 day supply of any drug.

Obtaining a Repeat Prescription

It couldnt be easier!

Requests for repeat prescriptions should be made at least two working days before your medication is required. This allows us time to prepare, check and sign the prescription. If your medicines are dispensed by the practice, it also allows time for less common drugs to be ordered. We endeavour to issue your prescription within 48 hours of your request (not including weekends or Bank Holidays)

Please note that patients who receive a hospital prescription must collect their medication at the hospital pharmacy.

The surgery will not dispense medication prescribed by the hospital.

To order your repeat prescription either hand in your computer slip at reception, indicating clearly which drug you require.

Or Send your computer slip by post, enclosing a stamped, self addressed envelope if you require your prescription to be returned to you.

Or Telephone the Reception on 01661 842626. Please ring between 09:30am and 5:30pm to order your prescription (Please note this is not available on a Thursday afternoon or between 12:30pm and 2:30pm ).
