Repeat Prescriptions

These are the ways in which to order your repeat prescription:blue_yellow_pills

  • In Person - Fill in the request sheet which comes along with your prescription and place it in the post-box situated on the ground floor of the health centre (within the main entrance)

  • Telephone  - Call the repeat prescription request number (01355 597888) and leave a message. Please make your request clear by informing us of your name and address, the drug name, dose, and frequency of administration.

  • Online - You can now order your own repeat prescriptions online.  Please ask our reception staff for details on how to register for this service.

If we cannot identify what you are looking for then your prescription will be delayed until clarification can be obtained.

Prescriptions will normally be generated within 4 working days (this does not include weekends).

Please keep track of when your medication is likely to run out as repeat prescription requests which become urgent as a result of poor planning will not be prioritised. 

 

Requests for prescriptions not on repeat 

Should you wish to request medication that is not on a repeat prescription please call the main practice number between 10am and 12 noon and select the appropriate option to discuss with a staff member. You will need to provide your name and address, the exact name of the medication you require, the dose, the frequency of administration and when you last had a prescription for it.

Prescriptions will normally be generated within 4 working days (this does not include weekends).

Please keep track of when your medication is likely to run out as Special Prescription Requests which become urgent as a result of poor planning will not be prioritised. 

PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU HAVE RUN OUT OF MEDICATION ENTIRELY, WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO ASK YOU TO LIAISE WITH YOUR LOCAL PHARMACY TO OBTAIN AN EMERGENCY SUPPLY FROM THEM- WE MAY NOT PRIORITISE YOUR REQUEST. 

 

Medication reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications.
