The doctor will tell you if the medication he has prescribed is going to be provided as a repeat therapy. You will be given a repeat prescription slip with your prescription. To order a further supply of your medication, tick the items required and post the slip through the letter box in the front of the reception counter. You can order your repeat prescriptions online, please ask at reception about registering for this service. Please try to allow 48 hours for a repeat prescription issue. If you are unable to call in at the surgery to order your prescription you may post your request. If you require the prescription posting back to you, please send a stamped, self-addressed envelope; you will need to allow more than 48 hours for this process. You may, as a last resort or in case of emergency telephone the surgery to order a prescription between the hours of 12 noon and 4.00pm, but it is vital that you have full details of the medication you require. Also we offer the Electronic Prescription Service which means your prescription will be sent to your nominated Pharmacy electronically.
Many of the local chemists operate an ordering and collection service for repeat prescriptions from the surgery for your convenience. Please ask your pharmacist for details.
If the hospital asks you to get a non-urgent prescription, please leave it at reception and it will be done within 48 hours; please do not expect it to be done straight away.
