Prescriptions

Please allow 5 working days for repeat prescriptions to be prepared and signed. Only order the medicine you actually need, rather than requesting everything.  This will help keep wastage to a minimum.

Please do not wait until your last tablet before requesting a repeat.  Please note, in the interest of patient safety,  we do not take repeat requests over the telephone.

Please do not collect prescriptions before 10:30am from the surgery. If you prefer you can ask that your prescription is sent direct to one of the local pharmacies, where you can collect your medication when it has been dispensed. Please ask reception to arrange this.

Repeat Dispensing

If you are on medication which does not change from month to month you may like to consider Repeat Dispensing.  This means that the doctor will authorise 6 months worth of prescriptions, in advance, so that you only need to go to the Pharmacy to pick up your medication once a month.  Please ask for a form from our Reception Staff.
