Requests must be made in writing before 11:00 - we do not accept verbal requests for repeat prescriptions.
If you have a regular repeat prescription you will receive a computer printout each time you collect your prescription, which lists all your medication. It is then only necessary to tick the items you require and hand it into the surgery or pharmacy.
Alternatively you can now order online via Patient Access. New users are required to complete a simple one-off registration. Pop into the Health Centre for your log-in id.
We operate a facility whereby prescriptions are delivered to the local pharmacist, from where patients may collect the items, or alternatively the patient can collect the signed prescription from the surgery. If you require your prescription to be kept at the surgery please indicate this clearly on your repeat slip. Please allow 2 working days.
If you request a repeat prescription by email, please look out for our email acknowledgement. If you do not receive one, it means we have not received your request and it will not be actioned. If this happens, please re-send your request or contact us at the surgery.
Electronic Prescription Services (EPS)
EPS allows us to send your prescription electronically to your nominated pharmacy, this could be either near your home or workplace - please advise our reception team if you would like to nominate one specific pharmacy. For further details please follow this link EPS patient information
When seeing the doctor for the first time, new patients are requested to bring a copy of their repeat medications to the consultation and to inform the doctor of any over the counter medication they may be taking. This helps to save any confusion when discussing medication and deciding future management.
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.
