Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions can be given for some medicines which are taken regularly. You may still need to speak to your clinician regularly to check on your progress.  We are only able to order medication which is on your repeat list.  If you request an item which is not, we will organise that you speak with a doctor or in house pharmacist to discuss further.

It is your responsibility to order medication before it runs out. Please allow three working days for collection from the surgery or five working days before collection from the pharmacy.

How to order your repeat prescription:

1. Please call 01556 505666. This number is for prescriptions only. An answering machine will take your message, so please speak clearly giving:

  • The name of the patient
  • Their date of birth (or address)
  • Which medicines are needed
  • Which chemist to send to

Please try to be organised so that you order only once a month.

2.  Online Ordering Please ask at Reception and we will be happy to tell you about this service and issue you with a unique pin number to enable you to register.

3.  A printed slip of your repeat medication is enclosed with your prescription.  Please tick the box beside the medication you require and either post this to the practice or hand in at reception.
