Patients on long-term medication can request repeat prescriptions. Please use the repeat prescription request form attached to your prescription and either post it to us or deliver it in person.
You can also make your request online. If you wish to sign up for online prescriptions please call into the surgery for details. If you have already registered for this service please click the image below to order your repeat. In order to avoid mistakes we are NOT able to accept requests by telephone.
Please allow at least two working days for your request to be processed. For convenience the local chemists offer an order and collection service. If you telephone them directly they will take your order from you and bring it to the surgery themselves. They will then collect it from us and have it ready for you to pick up from them. Please allow at least three working days for this service.
Please also check the date of your medication review. If this is out of date, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire before the prescription can be issued.

Patients are usually given a two-month supply of their repeat prescription and are allowed a number of issues of the medication, after which time they will be asked to attend for a medication review with the doctor either after 6 months or 12 months, depending on the types of medication. You may not need to see a GP in person and completing one of Drug review questionnaires may be all you need to do. Ask reception staff for further advice. Once the repeat prescription form indicates that the medication review is due, patients should make an appointment with the doctor for the next prescription or you may only need to see our Practice Nurse for Long Term Conditions for your review. It is important that all patients' medication is reviewed periodically. If the patient is housebound, we will endeavour to visit to complete the medication reviews at home. Please let reception know if this is required.
