Repeat prescriptions are medications that appear on the reverse of your prescription which your doctor would like you to continue on a regular basis.
How to Request a Repeat Prescription
Repeat prescriptions may be ordered in several ways:
You can order your repeat prescriptions via Patient Access on a computer, ipad or a phone app. The surgery will give you a log in and password to access this.
Fill in a prescription request form or underline the items needed on the tear-off side of your prescription and drop this into the surgery. Please do not order any medications you do not need.
If a stamped and addressed envelope is supplied, your prescription can be returned via Royal Mail. Find our postal address.
To eliminate errors and avoid congestion of our telephone lines we do not accept prescription requests over the telephone.
It takes 2 working days to process a repeat prescription after we receive it. Give as much notice as possible to ensure you do not run out of medication.
- Please remember the doctor will still need to see you at regular intervals to review your medication/condition.
- Leave enough medication in case you need a review appointment.
- Repeat prescriptions will only be issued if previously agreed by the doctor. Reception staff are unable to issue non-authorised medication prescriptions.
- If your prescriptions are times such that you need to request different prescriptions at different times in the month, ask your doctor to alter your prescriptions so that you can order all your medications at the same time.
