Repeat Prescriptions

Prescriptions by telephone

Telephone requests will only be taken from patients who are housebound, elderly or terminally ill. These requests will only be taken between 1pm and 2pm.  To do this, please ring your surgery number.

Repeat prescriptions using pre-printed tear-off prescription slip

Repeat prescriptions should be requested in writing. You will have a pre-printed tear-off slip attached to your prescription; please use this. A minimum of 48 hours notice should be given before your medicines are due to run out.

Please mark your request slip clearly with a tick against the items you require. When you hand in your request, you will be informed when it can be collected. 

Ordering repeat prescriptions online

You can now order your repeat prescriptions online using the Patient Access system or via the myGP app.  For more information on how to do this, visit our online services website page.

Prescription reviews

Most repeat medications require regular review.  This is to ensure that the prescribed medication continues to be appropriate, necessary, effective and safe. Your repeat slip will be highlighted if you need a review before a particular item can be re-issued. Please make an appointment at the surgery before you run out of medication. Our nurses can conduct asthma, hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, weight management & contraceptive reviews.

Short notice repeat requests are issued at the discretion of the doctor. You may be issued with a small supply of medication until the next available appointment.
