Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions should be ordered before your medication runs out. When ordering repeat prescriptions please give 2 working days notice. We would ask for your understanding if we are not able to produce your prescription within 2 working days, there may be a query about your medication and the prescribing doctor may not always be available.

We do not take requests over the telephone.

You can:

  • Drop it at the surgery in the box next to reception. (if the surgery is closed please use the post box on the surgery gates)
  • Post the request enclosing an SAE if you want it posted to you.
  • Order on-line using the above links.

The staff are able to give advice or help with:

  • Any problems patients are experiencing with ordering/collecting their prescriptions
  • Aligning patients' medication so that all their regular medication runs out at the same time.

Most of our local pharmacies have a collection and delivery service available.  Please speak to your pharmacist for further details.
