How to request a repeat prescription
Please note that we do not accept medication requests over the telephone.
Please see the following for the ways in which you can make your requests:
- Using our Online Repeat Prescription Service
- You may hand in your computer slip or a note with your name, address, DOB and the medication required written clearly
- Set up a direct Repeat Prescription Order through your local Pharmacist
- By post
Repeat prescriptions will be ready in 3 working days from your request. Please note if your prescription request is NOT for a repeat prescription it may not be possible to agree to your request, it will take longer to process and the doctor may wish to speak with you. Delays may also occur if your medication request is different from what your doctor has prescribed for you.
We will return your prescription to you by post if a stamped addressed envelope is provided.
Many chemists offer a delivery and collection service. Speak to your preferred chemist directly for details. This means that you do not have to come to the practice to collect your prescription and then take it to a chemist.
