Authorised repeat prescriptions can be requested in various ways using the right hand side of your prescription with the list of repeat medications:
- Via your chemist-your pharmacy will accept your request (if they have a copy of your repeat prescription) either in person or over the telephone (or the internet in the case of Pharmacy2U). The pharmacy will then request your prescription from the surgery and issue the medications depending on the method arranged with you.
Medications that are not present, requested too early or have been altered on the repeat prescription cannot be issued by the reception staff and must be reviewed by a GP. This may cause some delay to the issue of the prescription.
Please allow 2 working days before coming to pick up your prescription (excludes weekends and bank holidays)
At present we do not accept requests over the telephone
All repeat medications require a minimum of an annual review and the Practice uses birthdays as the reminder date on the prescription.
Chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, thyroid conditions, diabetes, epilepsy, asthma and COPD, heart disease and circulatory problems (such as peripheral vascular disease or stroke) are managed by the Practice nursing team initially, please arrange an appointment via reception stating the condition as appointment times vary depending on this. Patients with diabetes and high blood pressure are invited twice a year by the Practice for their reviews.
