Repeat Prescriptions
We run a computerised prescription service for those patients on regular repeat medication. 

Please be ORGANISED and order in good time. In all cases allow 48 hours for us to process your request. Prescriptions ordered on Friday will be available for collection on Tuesday. If you are ordering on line over the weekend please allow 48 hrs from opening on Monday morning.

Prescriptions can be ordered:

  1. Securely on line
    Please Click here to order your repeat medication

  2. By posting the right-hand page (white page) of your prescription into the Repeat Medication orders post box in reception; having ticked the item(s) you require.

  3. By sending the right-hand (white page) of your prescription to us in the mail; having ticked the item(s) you require. Signed prescriptions will be returned to you if you enclose a stamped addressed envelope.

  4. By your pharmacist at your request.

From 1 July 2015 we will no longer be able to take your repeat medication orders by telephone or at the desk. We are sorry if this inconveniences you.

If you have run out of medication and urgently require it, it MAY be issued on a same day basis at the doctors discretion.

All repeat medication needs reviewing on, at least, a 6 monthly basis. Sometimes this may be possible over the phone.

Generic Prescribing  
Occasionally the name of one of the drugs on your prescription might change.  This is because it is Practice policy to prescribe drugs by their “generic” or proper name and not their “brand” name.  This small alteration does provide a significant saving to the NHS drug bill and allows the drug budget to stretch further.  Only the name will have changed and not the actual drug prescribed.  If you need further information about this please speak to your doctor.

Preventing Waste and Fraud
You can also help us to prevent waste and fraud and to maximise the use of NHS resources by:  
only ordering the items you genuinely need.
not stockpiling medicines; they go out of date and can be dangerous. 
not ordering prescription items for friends, family or neighbours.
