For patient safety we do not accept telephone requests for medication under any circumstances.
Requests for repeat medication can be handed in at reception, put through our letterbox when we are closed, posted to us or requested through this web site by completing the online form Online Enquiry Form. Please enclose a stamped, self addressed envelope if you wish the prescription to be sent to you. Allow 72 hours excluding weekends or bank holidays for the prescription to be completed. Prescriptions can be collected from the reception desk.
Alternatively, all the local chemists operate a collection service of patients' prescriptions from our surgery, so please speak to your pharmacist to enquire about this service.
We are also equipped to provide prescriptions electronically. See our receptionists about registering for this service. You will need to nominate a particular pharmacy.
It is our policy and that of the government to issue two months' supply of drugs at a time.
If you have a repeat prescription, we may ask you to come in for a regular review. Please book a routine appointment for your review using the online form Online Enquiry Form. If you do not book a review when asked, you may be placed on 7 day prescriptions.
