REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

If you are on long-term medication you may be issued prescriptions without the need to see your doctor each time.  You will be required to attend annually for a review of your treatment.  Repeat prescriptions are normally issued for 28 days and can be ordered by:

  • • Written requests, by using the right hand side of the computer generated prescription form.  (A post box is situated on the wall in the reception lobby for prescription requests)
  • • If you need the prescription to be sent to you, an SAE is needed.
  • • You can order online using My Health Online – ask at the reception desk for further details.
  • • If you are unable to leave a written request, please phone the surgery during office hours.  The phone lines are quite often quieter in the afternoon, and you may find it easier to phone for your prescription at this time.

Prescriptions will be ready for collection after two working days.
