These are generally issued for patients on long- term medication and at the doctor’s discretion. To request a repeat medication:
- Tick clearly the item/s you require on the computerised repeat request form attached to your last prescription.
- Completed forms can be placed in the box on reception, and when the surgery is closed placed in the staff entrance post box.
- Collect your prescriptions from reception after 72hrs and after 4pm
- Please provide a stamped addressed envelope if you would like your prescription sent back to you.
- Some local pharmacists offer a repeat prescription service, and also may be able to deliver requested medicines.
- If you nominate a Pharmacy to collect/request your prescription please notify the surgery so we can update your records.
Help us to maintain an efficient and safe service – so please:
- Always use the computerised slip – the reception staff can reprint if lost.
- Note we do NOT accept requests by phone as mistakes can occur.
- Do NOT ask for medicines which are not on your repeat list. For this you will need to book an appointment with one of our doctors, and any further medicine may be subsequently put on to repeat.
- Do NOT ask reception for repeat medications as ‘an emergency’. There are very few situations where this is genuinely the case and, you may be asked to book an appointment to see a doctor. Leave plenty of time before weekends, bank holidays and vacations.
