Repeat prescriptions can be requested via our online services, or by bringing in or sending the repeat slip (attached to the right of your prescription) to the surgery.
For safety reasons we do not take repeat requests on the telephone. Please allow two complete working days from our receipt and order early for Bank Holidays etc. or 4 days if you order from a chemist.
We can dispense medicines to patients who live more than a mile from the surgery.
Arrangements can be made with the surgery or either of the local pharmacies for repeat prescriptions to be automatically generated each month. Please ask either the dispensary or your chosen pharmacy (as appropriate) for more information.
If you need medication outside normal working hours contact the 111 service by calling 111 (available 24 hours).
If you need to request your medication early please let the dispensers know the reason for the early request. If required urgently, please speak to a member of the dispensary team.
Please be aware the dispensary do not take phone calls between the hours of 12 and 2 pm
If you live more than 1 mile from a pharmacy your prescription and medication will be processed by the surgery.
If you live within a 1 mile radius from a pharmacy your repeat prescription will be given to you to take to a pharmacy of your choice. At present, you may receive your prescription in one of two ways, either collecting from the surgery or providing a stamped and addressed envelope so that we can post it to you. If you would like the prescription sent automatically to a local pharmacy please speak to our dispensary team.
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.
