Repeat prescriptions are issued at the doctors’ discretion and are normally for patients on long term treatment. They can be ordered by computer request forms (the tear off page opposite your last prescription) and posted in the box at reception, clearly marking, with a tick, which items are required, by post or by using the new online system link below.
A minimum of 48 hours notice, Monday to Friday, is needed from the time the request has been deposited to the time the prescription can be collected from the surgery. However, you may collect your medication directly from the Chemist if you indicate this preference on the request form.
We are unable to take requests or issue repeat prescriptions at weekends, public holidays or outwith normal surgery hours.
Requests for repeat prescriptions are NOT taken over the telephone except for patients known to be housebound.
Warning – too many tablets can damage your health
Please check your repeat prescription list carefully and delete any medication which you no longer take and return the amended list to the Reception Desk as soon as possible. According to the Practice policy, the computer may print your prescription using your medicine’s ‘proper’ or ‘generic’ name. Although the appearance of your medicine may be different, the active drug it contains is identical. If in doubt, seek advice.
We advised patients that used the previous online repeat prescription ordering system that as of the 30/09/2016 we will remove the link and that patients must register for the new, more secure system to order their repeat prescriptions.
The new online repeat prescription ordering system is for medication that is on your repeat prescription only. For any medicine that is not on your repeat prescription, please contact reception or phone 01555 665522 and select option 2.
