Repeat presciptions are normally for patients with long-term conditions who receive regular treatment. Your doctor will decide who can have a repeat prescription. Your doctor will review all repeat prescriptions regularly, we do this to keep a check on your illness. Patients with some chronic illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and asthma will be seen regularly for monitoring of their condition.
Prescription Charges and Exemptions
You can order a repeat prescription via this website using our online form (see link below) or handing in the right hand side of your prescription with the box ticked for the medication you need. You can do this by calling into the surgery and posting your written request in the surgery posting box or sending the request by post. If you are housebound or disabled please speak to the receptionists. Please allow 48 hours (2 working days) for the prescription to be ready. We cannot take telephone requests for repeat prescriptions because of the possibility of error.
Please order your repeat prescription from the same surgery each time and try to use the same Pharmacy for dispensing.
If you think you may need a new prescription for medicine please make an appointment with the doctor. Tell us of any changes to your repeat prescription list made at the hospital or if you stop any medication by yourself.
Do not stockpile unwanted drugs at home, return them to your chemist
