Repeat Prescriptions

We operate a repeat prescription system which means that if the doctor puts your medicines on "repeat" you can tick the relevant boxes on the prescription tear-off slip, when your medications are due, and hand (or post) it to reception. The list of medicines you can order without being seen are listed on your re-order slip which is given to you when you order a prescription. You can usually arrange to order your repeat medication from your local pharmacist with their agreement. Please discuss this with them directly. The phone numbers for local pharmacies can be found on the 'Useful links' page of the website.

To order prescriptions over the telephone please call between the hours of 11.30am-12.30pm in the mornings or between 3.30pm-4.30pm in the afternoon.

Without such information you will require to make an appointment.
Please allow 48 hours for your request and telephone back to confirm if your request has been fulfilled
Please do not request the following medication as they will require an appointment:
  • Antibiotics
  • Contraceptive pill - It is important to check your blood pressure every six months. (Emergency one month supplies can be given if necessary).
  • Hormone Replacement Therapy
  • Antidepressants  (unless previously authorised to request by the doctor)

Medication Reviews

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.

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
