Repeat prescription requests cannot be taken over the telephone.
Patients on regular medication are given a printed list of their medicines. To obtain a repeat prescription leave this list with the receptionist having clearly marked the items you are requesting. A new prescription will be ready for collection after 48 hours (2 working days), or if a self addressed envelope is left with us we can post it back to you.
If you are aware that your list contains medicines which are no longer needed, please inform reception who can update the records.
All prescribed medications are regularly reviewed by your doctor and the doctor may need to discuss your medication with you. When this happens you will be asked to make an appointment.
Many of the local pharmacies offer a one-stop service. This means that if you take the printed list of medications to the chemist they will organise getting the request to the surgery, collect the prescription and have it dispensed ready for you to collect. For housebound patients some chemists will also deliver the medication. Please ask the receptionists which chemists offer these services.
