Repeat Prescriptions

This Practice operates a system that allows you to obtain a prescription for regular medication without having to see the doctor. So that this system runs smoothly you are asked to note of the following points:

Three days notice is required for a repeat prescription to be issued. Your prescription will be ready in 3 working days after you request it.

All requests for repeat prescriptions should be made using the right-hand portion of the slip issued with your last prescriptions. All other written requests include:

  • Your name and address
  • The name of your medicine
  • The dose you are currently taking
  • How often you take it
  • When it was last supplied
  • Contact phone number

Telephone requests are not accepted.

Fax requests to 01923 663663.

Postal requests, with a stamped addressed envelope, are fine, but please allow for extra time for your prescription to be returned to you.

When requesting via the Pharmacy, each item that is needed MUST be ticked and initialled by YOU, the patient.

Online requests - there is now the opportunity to request prescriptions online via the link at the top of this page. You will need to register to enable you access. For details on how to register for repeat prescriptions online please ask at reception for a registration Letter. Click HERE to read more on this service. Please note: We will need proof of identity before you can register for these services e.g. original passport, driving license, utility bill.

Please allow the same timescales for these requests as for regular faxed / hand written ones.

If you are asking for items that have not been recently requested (i.e. more than 6 months ago) or are not listed on the right hand side request form of your prescription, then one of the doctors may ask to see you before the prescription is issued.

Please only ask for items that you need. This avoids waste of medicines and unnecessary medicines lying around the house. These items will still be available for you to request if needed later.

If are going away on holiday, or you are ordering more medication than normal, could you please give us more notice and a reason why the additional tablets are required.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
