We are a fully computerised surgery and for your safety all routine prescriptions are produced by our computer. If you need a repeat medication of something that you receive regularly, then you do not necessarily need to see a doctor. There are 2 ways in which you can request repeat medication:
- Use the Online Access System - you can use the internet to log in and request prescriptions (in fact, you can book or cancel appointments too!) You will need to register for this service - see reception for further information. You will need to provide photographic ID and proof of address.
- Post - Using the tear off slip on the right hand side from your last prescription; please ensure you tick the required items. Forms that do not have any ticks or circles against items may be returned to you for clarification. Please post this to us, or hand deliver and post it in the box provided at the front of the surgery. If you are unable to do this, please get a relative, carer or friend to do this for you. (Please note, if you lose this slip, just write your personal details down on a piece of paper, along with what medications you require).
Please always allow 5 full working days for your medications to be prepared before you come to collect them.
Your medication will normally be issued on a 28 day basis and we request that all regular items are ordered at the same time, if at all possible. Patients on long-term medication are usually reviewed every 6 to 12 months.
We regret that, for reasons of accuracy and safety, we are unable to accept requests for repeat prescriptions by telephone.
