If you need to take regular medication your doctor may give you a REPEAT prescription without the need for you to be seen every time in surgery.
A repeat prescription is an item of medication that has been approved by a doctor for issue at intervals and can be signed by any Doctor in the Practice.
The doctor will not routinely issue your prescription early. We will usually issue your prescription up to one week before it is due (in the case of monthly supply). We will not issue medication prior to this, unless there are exceptional circumstances, when a doctor will decide if early issue of your medication is appropriate and safe.
If you are a patient, all you have to do is register for online prescriptions. You will need access information which is obtained from the practice. The username and password will be unique to you.
Please email your prescription request clearly including your full name and date of birth.
Simply order your repeat prescription face to face with a member of our reception team. With computerised repeat prescriptions you will receive a tear-off slip with each prescription issued which lists all the items you have been prescribed for repeated use. This will be one month's supply.
Please order a week before your supply runs out and enclose a stamped and self-addressed envelope, preferably using the repeat slip with the items required clearly marked.
