Patients taking repeat prescriptions can make a request online providing they have a password and provided that the medication is authorised as a repeat medication on the right hand side of your prescription - please contact reception on the procedure.
We now transmit nearly all prescriptions electronically to your nominated pharmacist without the need for you to visit the surgery . This is extremely efficient, saves paper, reduces risk of fraud and allows tracking of the prescription and is now our preferred method of issuing all prescriptions. It also saves the need for you to visit the surgery to collect the prescription.Some prescriptions still need to be printed (for example controlled drugs)
The most efficient procedure for patients taking repeat prescriptions is to order online and collect from your nominated pharmacist usually within 2 working days - but please read our policies below.
Further Information on Electronic Prescriptions
You can also still request a repeat prescription by ticking the items that you require on the right hand side of the paper prescription and posting it in the prescriptions box at the surgery. There is a box at the front of the surgery when we are closed.
A medication on your repeat medications list allows you to order the medication without having to see a doctor until a predetermined review date when you will be required to consult the doctor to ensure that the medications you are taking are still appropriate for your medical condition. Only the doctor can decide which medications that you are taking will be added to your repeat list as for some items your clinical records need to be reviewed every time you request that medication.
Please note that if the doctor feels that your medical condition needs to be reviewed, they may request that you are seen in surgery prior to authorising a repeat prescription.
Early requests for prescriptions will be rejected and you should not normally request medications more than 7 days before they are due.
