Repeat prescriptions will be issued without seeing the doctor if the medications requested are printed on the right hand side of your prescription. To use this service you are required to tick which items you require and return it to the surgery at least 48 hours before you need your next prescription.
The prescription will only be issued if it has been at least three weeks since your last issue and you are not overdue your medication review (this date can be found on the right hand side of your prescription).
Contraceptive pill, hormone replacement therapy and antibiotics always require an appointment before a prescription can be issued.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
If you have been advised by the surgery that your medication review is due please use this form.
