It is important to plan ahead as repeat prescriptions normally take a minimum of 2 working days after we receive the request. (Repeat prescriptions requested before noon will normally be ready for collection from 14:00 two working days later).
We regret that we cannot take telephone requests for repeat prescriptions under any circumstances.
We are able to issue Electronic Prescriptions (EPS) for patient’s repeat prescriptions. This requires a patient to nominate their preferred pharmacy for the electronic prescription to be sent to. This will cut down waiting times, while providing patients with greater choice on where and how they would like to receive their prescriptions.
Repeat Dispensing from the Pharmacist
If you or someone you care for use the same medicines regularly, you can order them through the pharmacist. This means you won’t have to visit the surgery or make an appointment to see the doctor or nurse every time you need more medicine.
Repeat prescriptions should be ordered by returning the tear off slip from a previous prescription. Alternatively, please send your requirements to the surgery in writing, enclosing a self addressed envelope.
