Repeat Prescriptions

Patients who are on regular medication may obtain repeat prescriptions under certain circumstances without seeing their doctor. To request a repeat prescription you can either:

  • Request the repeat prescription using the Online Services.
  • Hand the repeat prescription into Reception.
  • Fax the request to the surgery.
  • Post the repeat prescription to us, enclosing a stamped addressed envelope.

If you are nominating a Chemist for your Prescription to go to, please allow an additional day to allow time for your medication to be dispensed.

We cannot accept repeat requests by telephone. This is a safety measure to avoid prescribing and transcription errors. Sorry for the inconvenience, but all surgeries have this rule in place.

Prescription requests must be in writing – either posted through our letter box, via your pharmacy or by email : d-ccg.stthomasp@nhs.net

Please allow 5 working days from the date of your request for the prescription to be processed before contacting your nominated pharmacy.

If you have any queries regarding your medication please contact the prescribing team direct
