Repeat Prescriptions

We operate a repeat prescription service allowing patients on long term medication to obtain a prescription without consulting the Doctor when their condition is stable. Patients’ medication will however be reviewed at regular intervals (at least every six months).

Please allow at least 48 hours (2 working days) notice when requesting your repeat medication as demand is extremely high.

We also offer you the opportunity of sending your signed prescription to the local Pharmacy. This will allow you to collect your medication or have this delivered to you directly and hopefully reduce your waiting times. If you would like your prescription posted out to you or your local Pharmacy, please provide a stamped addressed envelope with your prescription, when sending this in.

We can take your repeat prescription request over the phone.  Please have a list of the medication you need ready to read out to us when you call as we cannot accept ‘everything’ or ‘what I had last time’.
