If agreed with your doctor, repeat prescriptions will be issued from the computerised record. Repeat prescriptions should be requested either:
We request that you don’t bring in lots of boxes as it is difficult for the reception staff to write these down when they are busy in the morning. The reception staff however do try and help patients who have no one to help them at home and those who are not able to read and write English.
Repeat prescriptions are not normally issued over the telephone. Please allow 2 working days before coming to collect your prescription excluding weekends and bank holidays
Other Medication Requests
If you would like medication which is not on your repeat prescription for example hayfever tablets then you come into the practice and request the medication. The receptionists will write this down in the request book. The GPs will look at the request and if they want to see you they will ask reception staff to call you, please make sure you give us your correct telephone number.
If the request is for past medication then GPs may issue a script and you will be able to collect this 4 working days after your request. Sometimes there can be delays in issuing the medication but please be patient as its for your own safety as GPs need to look at your records before they can issue.
