For safety, prescription requests must be made in writing.
Repeat prescriptions requests can be made at reception, by giving 48 hours’ notice in writing of the items you require, online via Patient Access or with 72 hours notice via your usual pharmacy.
If you request any medication that you do not normally receive or haven’t had for a while, there may be additional delay and a doctor may need to speak to you.
Please enclose a stamped addressed envelope if you wish the prescription to be posted back. You may also request medication through your usual pharmacy.
Please inform your usual pharmacy if you would like them to collect the prescription on your behalf.
Please remember to always keep medicines out of children’s reach. Unused medicines and those without labels may be returned to your pharmacist.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
