Repeat Prescriptions

In order to avoid errors, we DO NOT accept requests for repeat prescriptions by telephone. All prescription requests must be made in writing or via our online system.

Treatment cards for routine medications are issued by your doctor and can be used to order further prescriptions.

Please allow two working days for the request to be processed (enclose a stamped addressed envelope if you wish us to post it). If you do not have a treatment card you can still request your medication by writing it on a slip of paper along with your name, date of birth and address.

If you require a medication which is not listed on a treatment card, please make an appointment with your doctor to discuss it.

Patients can arrange for a pharmacy to pick up their prescription directly from the surgery. Please contact reception for details. A repeat dispensing or ‘batch system’ is available for patients on repeat prescriptions who use the same pharmacy each time. A batch of prescriptions is issued and then lodged with your chosen pharmacy. The system has the advantage in that you can have a prescription dispensed early if you are going away. Patients generally need to see their doctor for a check-up before the next batch is issued.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
