Please note that patients must register with a chemist of their choice before requesting this service from our practice
Repeat prescriptions can be ordered by using the tear-off slip attached to your prescription. These can be posted in to the surgery and, if a stamped addressed envelope is enclosed, we will post it back to you. Alternatively, requests for repeat medication can be handed in to the surgery.
Due to the volume of requests we receive for repeat prescriptions we do not deal with repeat prescription requests over the telephone.
Prescriptions will be ready for collection after 2 working days or can be forwarded to certain chemists for collection after 2 working days.
Details of the chemist collection system are available from our receptionists.
From time to time, you may be invited to attend the surgery for a review of your repeat medication. You will be informed about this when you pick up your repeat prescription.
LOST PRESCRIPTIONS OR MEDICATION
Your prescriptions and medication are your responsibility. Lost or stolen prescriptions or medication need to be discussed with the surgery staff as soon as you are aware of the loss.
Failure to report may affect the re-issue. The loss/theft may also need to be reported to the police, depending on the medication in question. For more information please speak to Reception.
It is your responsibility to store your medication and prescriptions safely.
If you have changed either your home or mobile telephone number please ensure you notify us using the ' Change of Details Form' on the website home page.
