Repeat Prescriptions

 

How to request your medication

 

Request can be made in Person, via email, or in writing. We also offer an online repeat prescription service. You can now order repeat prescriptions on your mobile and desktop. Please log onto www.patient.co.uk  and follow the instructions.

.

 

You can either tick the necessary items from the checklist on the right hand side of your last prescription or supply a letter with your name, date of birth, address and required medication or complete a medication request form in the surgery. We are unable to take repeat prescription request over the telephone, During holiday periods or outside normal working hours. You may also set up a repeat prescription service with one of the local pharmacies who can take requests over the phone and deliver to your home address. Please enquire at reception.

For patients well controlled on medication and attending regular reviews a Repeat dispensing service can be arranged please ask your doctor or nurse for details.

 

 

Notice Period

 

Prescriptions requested are normally ready for collection within 48 hours. If requesting this through the pharmacy, the timescale may take a further 24 hours to achieve, depending  on pharmacy pickup schedule.  The time we take to prepare your prescription allows the doctor adequate time to check your request and review your medication where appropriate.  We believe this system ensures a high standard of care. Please avoid asking staff to process your request any quicker.
