For medicines that are needed on a regular basis, you may need to be given a repeat prescription slip.
Prescriptions may be obtained by handing in or posting your prescription slip, with a tick indicating which medicines you require, or by registering with Patient Access ensuring you allow at least two whole working days for processing. This is to allow time for the doctors to check your medicines, as they are legally responsible for them.
Patient Access is a more secure option of ordering your prescriptions.
We also accept written repeat prescription requests by fax on 903 9939.
Repeat prescriptions can be collected from reception in office hours.
They can be posted to you if you include a stamped, self-addressed envelope.
Some local pharmacies also offer a repeat prescription collection service - please ask your pharmacist.
Please be advised:
- We do not accept telephone requests for repeat prescriptions as this can lead to serious mistakes.
- Do not put the doctors and staff under unnecessary pressure by demanding prescriptions the same day.
Occasionally the prescription will include a message asking you to see the doctor before the next prescription is given. This is to check your health and ensure no changes are needed to your medicines.
You will be invited to see the doctor or nurse at least annually for a medication review.
