What is a Repeat Prescription?
A repeat prescription is a continuous supply of certain medication that you can routinely order for a set period of time without having to see a doctor.
The doctor will arrange for this medication to be available for you to order for a clinically appropriate length of time and you will then require a review.
We review any regular medication on a repeat prescription annually and wherever possible the doctor will do this without you having to attend the surgery.
If you have been advised by the surgery that your medication review is due please complete our form.
How Do I Order My Repeat Prescription
You can order your repeat medication in the following ways:
Please allow at least 2 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 3 working days for this service.
