Repeat prescriptions will be issued at the doctor’s discretion and are normally for patients on long-term treatment. Requests for prescriptions can be made by:
- completing the repeat slip from your last prescription and either posting it to the surgery or dropping it in
- submitting it electronically via the link below if you are registered for patient online access
Electronic Repeat Dispensing Service
Watch the video below to see how the Electronic Repeat Dispensing Service works - and how it could help you manage your prescriptions:
WE DO NOT ACCEPT PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS BY EMAIL.
We are also unable to accept requests over the telephone, because it is too easy for mistakes to be made.
Please allow 5 working days' notice (excluding weekends and bank holidays) before collecting your prescription from the surgery. Alternatively, you may send your request with a stamped addressed envelope to the surgery for return by post.
It is also possible for you to arrange with the local pharmacies for them to collect your prescription from the surgery on your behalf or you can ask about electronic prescribing at a pharmacy. Contact your pharmacy to request this free service.
Some local pharmacies also provide a free delivery service direct to your home. Ask your local pharmacy if they provide this service.
If you are collecting a prescription that contains controlled drugs, you will need to provide photographic ID.
If you are collecting on behalf of a friend or family member, you will need to show your own ID and state your relationship to the patient when signing for their item.
You can re-order a repeat medication once you are halfway through your supply.
- If you usually have 2 months' supply you can re-order after you
have used the first months' worth.
- For a one month prescription you can re-order after 2 weeks.
