Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions

Patients who need repeat prescriptions can either:

  • Order online
  • Order them at the desk
  • Post them by hand in the post boxes provided
  • Send them in via Royal Mail (please give at least 7 working days for requests sent in by Royal Mail)
  • Fax a request to 01744 624382

The housebound can, by special arrangement, have their prescription requests brought into surgery by the chemist.

We need a minimum of 2 working days notice to process prescription requests. Please note, requests received on Fridays, will not be available for collection until after 14:00 on Tuesdays.

Prescriptions can be collected from the Annex on Thursday afternoons when the main surgery is closed.

The Practice will only accept early medication requests for repeat prescriptions up to 7 days prior to their next issue date. Any requests earlier than 7 days (excluding prior agreements such as early requests due to holidays etc) will be rejected.

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.

If you have been advised by the surgery that your medication review is due please use our online form.
