Repeat prescriptions will be issued at the doctor’s discretion and are normally for patients on long-term treatment. Requests for prescriptions must be made in writing using the repeat prescription slip. We are unable to take orders or issue repeat prescriptions over the phone or at weekends, public holidays or out of normal surgery hours. Please allow two complete working days before collection and make allowances for weekends and public holidays. Where possible give exact drug names when ordering.
Repeat prescription slips may be dropped into the practice, posted or online. If an SAE is provided, prescriptions will be posted back. Please request repeat medication well in advance and remember to make an appointment to see the doctor before your review date expires.
The practice offers the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS), allowing patients to collect some acute and repeat prescriptions directly from their nominated pharmacy.
The practice is able to transmit prescription requests directly to the pharmacy. Please discuss this with your pharmacist if you are interested in setting this up.
Please be aware that within the current policy and procedure for high risk medications we are not able to email or fax patient prescriptions to the chemist.
Patients are required to collect them from the surgery. If you are not sure if your medication is a controlled drug / high risk medication please ask at reception next time you visit the surgery or phone and ask for Chris, our prescriptions clerk, and she will be able to advise you.
