Repeat Prescriptions

If you take certain medicines on a regular basis, your doctor may authorise you to obtain repeat prescriptions from the surgery. Your prescriptions will come with a counterfoil, the "prescription request form" which lists the names and doses of your medicines.  Please tick off those medicines which you require and place the form in the box in the waiting room before 3.30pm. Your prescription will then be ready for you after two working days (48 hours) or 3 working days (72 hours) if there are any queries or amendments that require attention. 

We regret that requests made later than 3.30pm cannot be attended to until the following working day.

If you post the repeat prescription form with a stamped addressed envelope, the prescription will be posted back to you.  Repeat prescriptions will generally be provided for up to six months before you are asked to see your doctor or a practice nurse to re-authorise further supplies.  Please make an appointment in good time so that you can be reviewed by your usual doctor. To avoid dangerous errors, we regret that we cannot take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.
