Repeat prescriptions will be issued at the doctor’s discretion and these are normally for patients on long-term medication. For your safety your request will be dealt with by your usual doctor as they have the most knowledge of your health issues.
For safety reasons we cannot accept requests for prescriptions over the telephone but they can be made in any of the following ways:
- In person - hand your repeat slip into reception with the required items clearly marked.
- By fax - to 01276 21661.
- Online - follow the link at the top of this page and complete a simple registration
- Via a pharmacy - most pharmacies will take telephone requests.
Signing up for the Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS) will allow us to electronically send your prescription direct to your selected pharmacy and you will not have to come to the surgery to collect it. Please ask the pharmacist or reception to set this up for you.
Please allow THREE full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
