Patients on regular medication may be offered repeat prescriptions. Repeat prescriptions can either be requested:
- in writing;
- by post;
- by bringing your request into the surgery;
- emailing your request to email@example.com
- by using our online prescription ordering service (Patient Access); or
Repeat prescriptions are computerised and each time a new prescription is issued, a new repeat prescription request form will be attached.
For medico-legal and safety reasons, prescription requests cannot be taken over the phone.
- Please allow 48 hours for your prescription.
- Tick which items you require.
- Please try to order all of your prescription items together.
- Please do not add unauthorised items to your repeat request slip as this causes delays.
- We would like to remind patients to make an appointment for a Medication Review when the message appears on their script.
You can collect your prescription from the Practice, or it can be posted to you if you enclose a stamped addressed envelope.
