HOW TO ORDER A REPEAT PRESCRIPTION
If you require prescriptions for regular and continuing treatment, it is not always necessary to see the doctor each time. Repeat prescriptions are computerised and the tear-off slip at the side will indicate the date your review is due.
Please give 2 full working days’ notice. Please DO NOT telephone. Prescriptions for controlled drugs, please allow 5 working days for these to be processed.
Patient Access is available to ALL our registered patients. Once registered, you can order your Repeat Prescriptions online via your home PC or mobile device.

If you need regular medication your doctor may authorise the issue of repeat prescriptions. When you receive your prescription you will also receive a tear-off portion giving details of your repeat medication. Please allow at least two to three working days to collect your prescription from the reception desk and three working days if you would like to collect your medication from a pharmacy. If you requre a repeat of a controlled drug please allow five working days. Please DO NOT wait until you have run out of tablets.
