If you think you may need a prescription medicine, please make an appointment with the doctor. Our practice nurses 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, please ask the receptionist. Your local pharmacist should be able to give you advice for non-prescription medication.
We have a computerised repeat prescription service. Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients with long-term conditions who receive regular treatment. Your doctor will decide who can have a repeat prescription. From time to time we will ask you to see your doctor or practice nurse to review your medication. We do this to monitor your illness and medication.
You can ask for a repeat prescription by calling into the surgery when the reception is open or by post (please enclose a stamped addressed envelope for return of your prescription). Wherever possible please give the exact drug names when ordering.
Please allow at least 48 hours before collection.
We cannot take telephone requests for repeat prescriptions.
Please enquire at your local pharmacy if they offer a prescription delivery service.
