Repeat prescription requests should be made:
- 7 days before the due date and you should allow 2 working days between request and collection. Requests for repeat prescriptions are not taken over the telephone.
- If you need to ask for your medication early e.g. as you are going on holiday then please give us this information with your repeat request to avoid any delay in processing.
- Repeat prescriptions can be sent on if you provide a stamped addressed envelope.
Chemist Collection Service
Some of the local chemists will collect prescriptions from the surgery and if necessary, deliver the medicine to your home. Please contact the pharmacist of your choice for further information.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
