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.
All requests for prescriptions must be made in writing. Allow 5 working days for us to process prescription requests, before contacting your nominated pharmacy.
