To maintain patient safety from the 1st of October 2021 all prescription requests must include drug name, strength and dose.
By arrangement with your doctor, you may obtain repeat prescriptions using the tear-off portion of your prescription form, please remember to tick the items you require. Please retain this form for future use; doing so will speed up the process for both you and the surgery. The form may be either handed in at the surgery or posted to the surgery. In all cases a written request will be required.
Please do not make an appointment for a repeat prescription or ask for a repeat prescription during a consultation with a doctor as this wastes valuable time.
If you prefer, you may order order online by following the link at the top of this page and completing a simple registration.
Please order your repeat items in time, You may order up to 10 days before your medications due date. This information can be found on your tear off tick slip. Patients who forget to do so place undue pressures on the service that can affect the turnround for other patients.
You will need to order early if your prescription is due during a Bank Holiday period or if you are going away on holiday. Please specify the reason why you are ordering early when you place your repeat request to avoid any delay.
Prescriptions issued by a hospital should be dispensed at the hospital. Items will only be issued on receipt of a typed, detailed letter from the hospital and take 7 - 10 days to process this new request.
If You require your local pharmacy to deliver your prescription, please speak to them direct to arrange this.
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. We will contact you by SMS, letter or telephone call to notify you of this request.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
It is recommended that prescribers should NOT supply treatment durations in excess of 3 months for patients who are travelling abroad or otherwise absent from the UK. Patients should make local arrangements in their destination country for on-going medical care. See link below for details:
