How to order a repeat prescription

 

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

 

Repeat prescriptions will be issued at the doctor’s discretion and are normally for patients on long-term treatment. We cannot take repeat prescription requests over the telephone as this is against national guidelines supplied by the National Health Executive. 

Please allow at least 7 days’ notice for repeat medication making allowances for weekends and public holidays.

Please do not allow your medication to run out before making a request.

Electronic Prescription Service

We prescribe using the NHS Electronic Prescribing System. This means that when we issue a prescription, instead of having a piece of paper that must be taken from the surgery to the pharmacy, the information is sent electronically. This removes the delays that can sometimes happen when at busy times and makes it much easier for patients who use other pharmacies. 

 

Medication Reviews

If you are on repeat prescriptions, you will periodically be asked to review these medications with a doctor, practice pharmacist or practice nurse. A medication review notification should appear on your repeat slip, or we will let the pharmacist know. This is to keep you safe and make sure this remains the right medication for you.
