Repeat Prescriptions

If your doctor agrees, you may be able to request a repeat prescription without seeing the doctor if you are on regular medication. Please note the methods for obtaining your repeat prescriptions.

Do not leave it until the last tablet before ordering your repeat prescription. If you are going to be away on holiday when your prescription is due for renewal, then please tell the receptionist in plenty of time, so that they can arrange for extra medication to be issued to cover your holiday. In some cases a repeat prescription will not be issued. Please do not blame the reception staff, they are only following the instructions of the doctor. In these circumstances, you will need to see the doctor before you receive your prescription. The doctor needs to see you from time to time to review your medication, for your own safety.

In the interests of safe prescribing all requests for repeat prescriptions are to be made by handing in the right-hand side of your prescription to the receptionist (tick the items that you require). We will require 48 hours’ notice in which to deal with your request. If you prefer, you may wish to post your request, but please allow a few days for your letter to reach us. If you leave a stamped addressed envelope, we will be happy to post your prescription to you. You may also FAX your request to 01706 242127 or if registered for on-line access Order your repeat prescription online (contact the practice for details of how to register for this).

Repeat Prescriptions can also be ordered by a `collect and dispense` service operated by most pharmacies. Please speak to the pharmacist and inform the reception staff that you consent to this process. 

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE WILL NOT ACCEPT REQUESTS FOR REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS VIA THE TELEPHONE.
