Patients on long-term medication can request a repeat prescription by ticking the required boxes on the tear-off slip attached to their previous prescription. You can either post or drop your request into the surgery. Repeats will be ready for collection 48 hours (2 working days) after the request is made. In the interests of patient safety and accuracy, we cannot accept telephone requests for repeat prescriptions except in special circumstances, such as from housebound or elderly patients. We have introduced the new Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which enables us to send prescriptions electronically to a pharmacy of the patient’s choice. This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient for patients and staff. Please inform us of your preferred pharmacy.
We also provide the Repeat Dispensing Service. This is a way of getting your medicines without having to ask the doctor for a prescription each time.
