If you are on regular medication and have been told you can have a repeat prescription without needing an appointment, there are a number of ways in which to re-order. Please bear the following points in mind as this will help us to always provide a prompt repeat prescription service.
There are various ways you can request a repeat prescription:
Prescriptions are carefully monitored and reviewed by the prescribing GPs who initiate medication reviews when required. It is therefore not usually necessary for patients to request an appointment for a medication review as these are carried out as matter of course.
Please allow two full working days for repeat prescriptions to be processed . Please bear in mind that over weekends and bank holidays prescription requests will take slightly longer to process
Information about prescription exemptions and fees can be found on the NHS website
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
