All repeat prescriptions are recorded on and issued from our practice computer and will have a counterfoil attached which details all your current medications. You can use this counterfoil to request further medicines by sending it to us or dropping it into reception. If you do not have this counterfoil please ensure that your name, address and the items you require are clearly indicated on your written request.
You can also order online via the link at the top of this page.
IF YOU ARE REQUESTING SOMETHING THAT IS NOT ON YOUR REPEAT, THE GP WILL REQUIRE A REASON FOR THE REQUEST. WITHOUT THIS REASON YOU MAY NOT RECEIVE THE PRESCRIPTION. THIS IS FOR SAFETY REASONS AND WILL HELP SPEED UP THE REQUEST PROCESS FOR NON REPEAT ITEMS.
Please note: you will not be able to order Warfarin/Methotrexate repeat prescriptions online. Issue of these medications need to be closely monitored. Please order directly through the surgery.
For women needing a repeat of the contraceptive pill, please make sure you have had your blood pressure taken within the last 12 months when ordering. You can either book an appointment with the nurse or use the machine at reception. It is important that you have a review yearly along with your blood pressure being taken.
For patient safety we do not accept requests for repeat medication over the telephone.
Note: we trust our local pharmacists to provide a safe and supportive service. We do not endorse or recommend any companies who provide online or postal service for repeat medication.
Occasionally you will be asked to see the doctor or practice nurse in order to review your treatment. At the bottom of the counterfoil on your repeat prescription form is a review date. This is to remind you that the doctor needs to be able to review your current medication to ensure it is helping your medical condition and to see if you are well. Please make a routine appointment with the doctor at the requested time. Occasionally these review dates are updated by the practice nurse, e.g. contraception/HRT checks.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
