Where a medicine is intended to be prescribed repeatedly, the prescription form will have a tear-off slip listing the items intended for repeat use.
You can obtain repeat prescription by returning, or posting, the tear-off slip to the surgery. We aim to provide you with your repeat prescription within 48 hours of your request.
If you would like your prescription sent to you, please enclose a stamped, addressed envelope with your prescription request.
You can now order repeat prescriptions online via the link at the top of this page. Please note that you will need to register for this service before using it. Please contact the practice to request registration. Allow 24 hours after receiving your log in details before trying to log in online.
Each repeat prescription item has a review date. This will be decided by your doctor when the prescription is first prescribed and will be reviewed by them on a regular basis. If you have passed your review date, no further prescriptions will be issued until you have reviewed the medication with your doctor. It is important to review your medication to check whether the medication is still needed and whether it is working as it should. We will also check that you are not having side effects, arrange any tests that need to be done to monitor the effects and check that nothing better could be used. Your medication should be reviewed at least once a year and more frequently for some medication.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
