Requesting repeat prescriptions
There are many ways you can request further supplies of your regular medications. We take requests in the following ways:
- Via Patient Access. You will need to complete our Register for Online Services form for this service
- By completing our Repeat Prescriptions Request form
- By completing the right hand side of your prescription and putting it in the box by the main entrance
- By post: please enclose a stamped, addressed envelope if you wish to have the prescription sent back by post
- In person at the reception desk you will be asked to put your request in writing
You can also have your prescription sent to a pharmacy of your choice. Please speak to your pharmacist or to a receptionist to arrange this by using one of the following forms:
Repeat prescriptions take two working days. Occasionally the doctor or administrator will need further information before being able to issue your prescription. We will try to contact you in this event, to prevent unnecessary delays.
If there is a note on your prescription saying your medication review is due or overdue, you will need to make an appointment to see your GP before we can issue any further repeat medications.
