Your prescriptions will be available within 48 hours (except weekends). Please note all repeat prescriptions will not be available until after 1.00pm.
If you arrange for a pharmacy to collect your prescriptions please inform the surgery. If a chemist delivers your medication and a consignment fails to arrive, please contact the chemist and not the surgery.
If you wish to leave a stamped addressed envelope we will return your prescription to you.
All patients on repeat prescription regimes must be seen by the doctor at least once a year. The date of your medication review will be printed underneath your medication on the right-hand side of the script. You will need to arrange an appointment with reception for the review. This often involves having blood tests and then seeing a nurse or doctor for a review with the results; reception will advise you of this. After that, a review may be required. For reasons of safety, we regret we cannot accept repeat prescription requests over the telephone.
You can use the NHS app to request your repeat prescription:
Electronic Prescribing Service
From Wednesday 6th July, this practice is introducing a new NHS service that will allow your prescription to be sent electronically from your GP to your pharmacy. This service is ideal for patients on stable, repeat medications, who use the same pharmacy to collect their prescriptions all the time. To sign up, you should go to your pharmacy and complete a nomination form or let the practice know. The next time you require a prescription, you should order in the same way but there should be no need to come into the practice, as it will be sent electronically to the pharmacy. If you have any questions please speak to the staff at the pharmacy, at the practice or visit https://digital.nhs.uk/Electronic-Prescription-Service
