If you have regular medication for a condition, that your doctor is aware of, you can periodically collect a repeat prescription from your practice without having to make an appointment.
Repeat prescription requests can be made in the following ways:
By Post / In Person / Online
You can send in a printed request slip (available from your practice, which shows the medication you are taking) to our practice by post or in person.
The right hand side of your last repeat prescription has a list of all medications. When you require a repeat prescription, tick the box for the medication required and either send it by post with a stamped, self-addressed envelope, or hand it in to reception personally.
You can also request medications online either via SystmOnline or the NHS App. For more information visit: https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/online-services/how-to-order-a-repeat-prescription/
If the item is not on repeat the prescription may take longer or you may be asked to see the Doctor to discuss your medication.
Please allow two days before collection of your prescription, to allow it to be checked and signed by your doctor.
You may be due a medication review (this is often to be found at the bottom of your prescription copy) and in this case you will be asked to make an appointment with the doctor. Some medications are not prescribed on a repeat basis e.g. the oral contraceptive pill and some antidepressants. If this is the case, the receptionist will advise you to make an appointment with the doctor or nurse as required.
Collection by a pharmacy
Please ensure you state the name and address of the chemist that you wish your prescription to be sent to. If the pharmacy does not collect from the surgery please send a stamped addressed envelope with your request.
