Repeat Prescription

DUE TO UNPRECEDENTED DEMANDS YOU NEED TO ALLOW A FULL 48 WORKING HOURS FROM REQUEST OF YOUR PRESCRIPTION TO COLLECTION(SEE QUICK GUIDE BELOW).

  • Patients on regular medication do not always need to see a doctor for a repeat of their medicine. You will be issued with a computer slip attached to your prescription.
  • When further supplies are required please TICK THE ITEMS YOU REQUIRE on the request form and put it in the letter box marked REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS. Allow two working days before collection.
  • If you are unable to come into the surgery then please send your request by post, enclosing a stamped addressed envelope.
  • We have a firm policy of not accepting requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.
  • If you are asking for a change to your repeat prescriptions or asking for non-agreed medication this will cause a delay and we therefore ask for you to allow FIVE WORKING DAYS before collection. In general, though, you should follow the guide shown here:

  • Some local chemists offer a delivery service for repeat prescriptions. If you wish to use this service please note it is the patient’s responsibility to inform the chemist that there is a prescription ready for collection at the surgery. This is a service offered by the chemist and not the surgery.

Please note if you have already signed up to a particular pharmacy this will be recorded on your medical records and any prescriptions ordered online will automatically be allocated to that pharmacy.

Please do not request that your online prescription request is sent on to a different pharmacy as we are unable to do this without receiving the correctly signed paperwork.

Unfortunately we are no longer allowed to offer cheaper private prescriptions in place of NHS prescriptions for those few patients who are on a lower income but are not in receipt of any benefits.

The British Medical Association lawyers have deemed this to be defrauding the NHS.

If you would like to raise this issue please contact your local MP.
