Repeat Prescriptions

medication4Patients who are on regular medication do not always need to see a doctor to obtain a repeat prescription. Your prescription will have a counterfoil attached to it listing the prescribed medication. This tear-off slip should be put in the repeat prescription box in reception or sent to the practice when you need further medication, after ticking the items you require. If the prescription is to be posted back to you, please supply a stamped addressed envelope.

Staff are not allowed to take a repeat prescription request over the telephone so we ask you not to do this, as a refusal may offend.

Repeat prescriptions can now also be requested on-line. In order to use this service please speak to reception staff who will be able to provide further details including your own personal ID number and password.

The large volume of repeat prescriptions requested on a daily basis require us to request 48 hours notice for a repeat prescription, although in exceptional circumstances less notice may be accepted. The doctors usually sign the prescriptions after morning surgery.

The tear-off slip (counterfoil) also gives a review date for your repeat medication. Please note the review is not always with the doctor as the nurses take part in shared care for certain chronic conditions such as coronary heart disease, hypertension, diabetes and asthma, as well as the monitoring of the oral contraceptive pill and hormone replacement therapy.
