If you think you may need a prescription medicine, please make an appointment with the doctor. Our practice nurse/nurse practitioner can also issue prescriptions for common ailments. If you have previously been given a prescription for a straightforward condition, such as hay fever, we may be able to issue a prescription after a telephone consultation. Please ask the receptionist for a telephone consultation. Your local pharmacist should be able to give you advice for non-prescription medication.
If you are on regular medication which have been set up onto your repeat list, you can request these in two different ways:
- Using the new facility via PATIENT ACCESS. If you are registered to book online appointments, the same service now allows you to request repeat medication aswell (see book an appointment page to log in)
Please remember to include you personal details including your surgery ID (printed on your repeat slip). We cannot accept telephone requests for repeat prescriptions because of the possibility of error.Please try to give us 48 hours from when a prescription is requested, to have the script signed and ready for collection. There will be a review date printed on your repeat slip. Please try to ensure you have seen a doctor or nurse practitioner prior to this date, to have your medication reauthorized for subsequent prescriptions. Many of our local chemists offer a collection service whereby they will collect your prescription from the surgery and have the medication ready and waiting for your collection from them. Some also deliver medication to your home. Please enquire about this service directly from the chemist.
