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.

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