It is your responsibility to order more medication in good time;

If you run out, we cannot release the duty doctor from more urgent tasks; please understand that for most long term medications, it is safe to leave them off for 48 hours.  Our receptionists will only accept emergency scripts for medication that is dangerous to suddenly stop.   

Do not ring our reception to check where your prescription is; you can check the progress of any script requested using the EMIS patient access.  The system automatically updates once your script is issued.

Methods of Ordering your Repeat Prescription.

We receive hundreds of prescription requests a week, therefore we are unable to accept prescription requests over the telephone as this would make our telephone lines far too busy, we must receive it in writing in some form as per our practice policy, please see the different options on how you can request below:

In Person

If you want to request medication in person you must use a ‘repeat request slip.’ There is one generated by the computer each time an item is repeated. You can then simply use this slip to re-order your medication by ticking the items you require & returning this slip to the surgery.

Alternatively you can submit a written request for the items required. This can be done by either writing to us (if you enclose a stamped addressed envelope, your prescription will be returned to you); sending us a fax on 680162

Via your Pharmacy

Your pharmacy may be able to put the request in on your behalf, via their drivers, or via fax. Please speak to your local pharmacy should you wish them to assist you with this.


When will my prescription be ready?

Once we have received your repeat prescription request it will take us 2 working days to process it. Please take the responsibility to order your medication in time. The surgery can not and will not rush through non urgent medication any sooner than this, please plan ahead and take the responsibilty to order in time. Our GP's have provided our reception/admin team with a strict list of what is classed as urgent medication, this is not the receptionists/administrators personal decision.


Pharmacy collection?

If you wish to collect your prescription from a local Pharmacy please clearly state the name of the Pharmacy every time you request a repeat prescription. If you wish to collect your prescription from a pharmacy please allow at least three to four working days as the pharmacy's do not always collect from us every day.
