Patients using the repeat prescribing system will be given a request slip listing the medications that can be ordered without seeing the doctor. Requests for repeats can be made in a number of different ways:
- By telephone - 01224 283977 is a dedicated line for prescriptions. You will be asked to leave details of your name, date of birth, items required, telephone number and where you will be collecting the prescription from.
- In person - drop the repeat slip in at reception with the required items clearly marked.
- By post - send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope and we will post it back to you.
- Online - complete the registration form (here) and order online at any time.
Please note any messages left on the prescription telephone number out of hours will be dealt with when the surgery is next open.
Some pharmacies will collect your prescription from the practice on your behalf and you can then collect your medication directly from them. Please discuss this with the Receptionist and we can arrange this service for you.
Please allow TWO FULL WORKING DAYS for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. Please allow extra time if your prescription is sent directly to a pharmacy or posted to your home address.
Patients on some repeat medications may be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
