Repeat prescriptions require 48 hours to fill, provided the computer printout is delivered to the surgery. You may drop the request in personally, post it through the front door letterbox, online or mail the prescription request to the surgery with a stamped, self-addressed envelope.
Please remember that prescriptions mailed to the surgery may take longer than 48 hours to complete, depending on the postal service.
Patients wishing to request repeat prescriptions by online via the above link need to obtain an internet booking registration form from the reception desk. Patients using this service are able to request repeat prescriptions 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Appointments can also be booked, amended or cancelled using this service.
In addition, many local chemists provide a comprehensive repeat prescription service, including delivery of medicines. Please discuss your requirements with your usual pharmacist.
Telephone requests for repeat prescriptions will not be accepted, except in genuine emergencies. This is to prevent mistakes such as prescription of the wrong drug or dose.
There may be a delay in issuing prescriptions if patients have not attended for review, or if the drugs requested are not authorised on the computer for repeat prescribing. In these cases prescriptions will be issued at the discretion of the doctor concerned.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
