How to get a Prescription
If you think you may need a prescription please make an appointment with the doctor. If you have previously been given a prescription for a straightforward condition, such as hay fever, we may be able to issue a prescription after a telephone consultation. Please ask the receptionist. Your local pharmacist should be able to give you advice for non-prescription medication.
Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients with long-term conditions who receive regular treatment. Your doctor will decide who can have a repeat prescription. From time to time we will ask you to see your doctor to review your medication. We do this to monitor your illness and medication. If you repeatedly fail to attend for a medication review the Practice may consider reducing the amount of medication it is willing to prescribe on a repeat basis until such time as you have had a medication review.
How to Order Repeat Prescriptions
If you have access to a computer you can register to use the Patient Access to order repeat medication online. All you have to do to register is call in at the surgery and ask one of the Reception Team for the Patient Access Registration Forms.
2. In Person
You can visit the surgery when the Reception is open or request a repeat prescription by post (please include a stamped addressed envelope with your request). You should only request the medication you require and, wherever possible, please give the exact drug names when ordering. Please allow at least 1 working day before collecting your repeat prescription.
