If you need your regular supply of medicines please contact us to get them in one of the following ways:
- If your prescription is computer printed, tick the boxes on the request form (right hand side of the prescription) and return it.
- Write a note stating what you need.
- Ask at reception for a copy of your repeat list, mark the medications you need then hand it back in.
- Online service via Patient Access.
(If you wish to order online you need to sign up for Patient Access if you haven't done this already. Click HERE for more information.)
The prescription will normally be done within 48 hours. If you want it posted back, please give us a stamped addressed envelope.
Some pharmacies will do prescription requests on your behalf, and may also deliver to your home: please speak to your pharmacist to arrange this.
Requests for changes of medication from hospital outpatients may take longer as they sometimes need clarifying.
If your medication is kept stable, then you may be able to join a scheme which means the pharmacy of your choice organises your repeat medications in between your routine doctor review appointments – please ask at reception for this if you are interested.
Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS)
With EPS it is possible to have your prescriptions sent electronically to the pharmacy or dispenser of your choice. Please speak to your pharmacist for more information regarding this service, or visit this page.
Every so often you will need to attend the surgery to check that there are no problems with your treatment, and that your medical issues are properly attended to: there is a ‘Review date’ at the bottom of your prescription to remind you when this is due. It is vitally important that you attend for your medication review on time so that we may monitor your illness and medication. We can not safely prescribe your medication if your medication review date is overdue.
Please don't request a repeat prescription unless the doctor has authorised it.
