If you are on long term medication you will be provided with a computer generated repeat prescription slip. This slip can be handed into the surgery using the repeat prescription box provided or posted enclosing a self addressed envelope.
You can order a prescription by registering on line ( please ask a receptionist for details).
Two clear working days are required for a repeat prescription. This is because it takes time to generate the large volume of prescriptions that are requested each day, then the doctor has to sign these the next day after their morning surgery. These prescriptions then have to be collated and sent to the appropriate places.
Please ensure you have adequate stocks of medication, we suggest re-ordering medication up to one week in advance.
Requests for urgent prescriptions are put in the daily query book and dealt with by the Duty Doctor at the end of their morning surgery. As you can understand, it is not possible for us to arrange a prescription to be immediately issued from the reception.
We request that patients do not telephone through prescription requests unless they are dispensing patients phoning the dispensary, this reduces errors and relieves the telephone system for booking appointments and emergencies. Please consider our on line prescription request service.
