We have a computerised repeat prescription service. Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients with long-term conditions who receive regular treatment. Your doctor will decide who can have a repeat prescription.
You can ask for a repeat prescription in the following ways:
- By calling into the surgery when the reception is open
- By post (if you would like us to post your repeat prescription back, please enclose a stamped addressed envelope)
- By telephoning the surgery.
- By the online system (see below).
Wherever possible please give the exact drug names when ordering. Please allow at least 48 hours before collection. Prescriptions are produced electronically and can go to the pharmacy of your choice directly (Controlled Drugs can not yet be sent electronically). If you wish to have your prescription delivered to your home this can be arranged by your local pharmacy.
Ordering Repeat Prescriptions Online
Patients can now access online ordering of repeat prescriptions via the link at the top of this page. If you wish to register to be able to use the online features, please call into your nearest surgery for your registration to be completed. We require a photo ID for this registration.
Our policy is to use generic names wherever possible. Many companies produce the same product under different brand names. Generic names avoid confusion and are included in all labelling in smaller print under the brand name.
Please note we do not prescribe antibiotics for coughs and colds or prescribe hard drugs or methadone.
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.
