Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions

Patients on regular medication will require repeat prescriptions. If you have repeat prescriptions you can order them online or you can use the re-order slip (white, right hand side of the prescription) to request further prescriptions. Repeat prescriptions are computerised and your doctor will have entered onto a computer the medication you are taking and each time a new prescription is generated by the computer, a new request form is also generated for you to make your request.

  • Allow 3 working days for collection of your prescription from the pharmacy of your choice
  • If you have more than one repeat prescription please try and order all your items together
  • Either deliver or post your repeat prescription form to the surgery. We can send the prescription form to your home address but remember to enclose a stamped addressed envelope. Please note that you can also collect your prescription from the surgery. Repeat prescriptions are not available while attending emergency surgeries
  • If you are receiving any medication which is not on your request form, please add this clearly on the request slip and this will be added after verification with the doctor

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to speak to a doctor at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please read any notifications that may appear on the re-order slip and always make a note of your review date. A review date reminder will be noted on the right hand side of your prescription.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment for your review to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions. If your review date has passed we may not be able to issue further prescription and only 14 days supply of medication until you have been seen.

Unused Medications

Please be aware:

  • Even if you never open them, once medicines have left the Dispensary they cannot be recycled or used by anyone else
  • Please return any unused medicines for safe disposal
  • If the pharmacy or hospital have dispensed your medications they can also be returned to the practice for safe disposal
  • Unused medicines kept at home are a safety risk for children and others who might take them.
