Repeat Prescriptions

We need three working days in order to issue you with a repeat prescription.

If you need to continue taking the same medication for a while, the doctor will authorise monthly repeat prescriptions. This means that you do not need to come and see a doctor when you need the next month’s prescription, until the medication is due for a review.

Please allow sufficient time to order your prescription before your current medication runs out, especially on Public or Bank Holidays.

We need three working days in order to issue you with a repeat prescription. 

You can order in the following ways:

  • Bring in your request to the Surgery.
  • Post your request to the Surgery – if you enclose an S.A.E. we can post the prescription back to you or direct to a Pharmacy of your choice.
  • Use our website to request your repeat prescription. We are able to send your repeat prescription direct to a Pharmacy of your choice for you to collect your medication.

We are able to send your repeat prescription direct to a Pharmacy of your choice for you to collect your medication.  This will save you coming to the Surgery to collect the prescription – please ask our Reception staff about this service.

Repeat dispensing and Electronic prescribing

If you always collect your medication from the same pharmacy, we can give you a batch of repeat prescriptions to leave with them, so that you can get a new supply by simply asking the pharmacist. Please ask about this, when your doctor or nurse authorises your next batch of repeat prescriptions.

We are now starting to issue many prescriptions electronically, so that you will not even need to take the paper prescriptions along – once it has been prescribed, you just go to the pharmacist and ask for your medication.  Please make sure you have informed the surgery of the pharmacy of your choice.
