These are only issued with a doctor's authorisation. If you have repeat prescriptions you can order them online or you can use the re-order slip (white, right hand side of the prescription) to request further prescriptions. To ask for a repeat prescription either hand in your re-order slip to your designated chemist or at the surgery.
Always allow ample time. Be sure not to run out. Allow at least two full working days (prescriptions can be collected after 4pm after the two full working days) if you hand it in to the surgery or five working days for postal requests. If you use a chemist ask when it can be collected. Prescriptions can be collected in person from the surgery or will be posted back if you provide a stamped addressed envelope.
Please read any notifications that may appear on the re-order slip and always make a note of your review date. If your review date has passed we may not be able to issue further prescription until you have been seen and it may not be possible to get an appointment if left too late.
We will ask you to see a doctor at least once a year, and for some conditions we may need to see you more frequently, before we can issue further prescriptions.
When will my Repeat Medication be ready to collect?
When ordering repeat medication please allow at least 2 working days (this excludes weekends and Bank Holidays), for your request to be processed.
Prescriptions ordered before 6pm will be ready to collect after 4pm two working days after receipt of your order. For example if you order on a Friday your prescription will be ready to collect after 4pm on Tuesday. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
Occasionally due to training or bank holidays there may be a delay when collecting your prescription. Please check our closure dates and training dates to ensure you do not run out of medication.
