If you are on regular medication you may be able to obtain repeat prescriptions without having to see the doctor every time. Repeat prescriptions may be requested by:
- Bringing your repeat prescription slip to the surgery (if the surgery is closed, use the letterbox to the right of the front door).
- Sending your repeat prescription slip to us by post.
- Ordering your repeat prescriptions online using SystmOnline or the NHS App.
As demand for prescriptions is always high and even higher on some days, please allow five working days to process your prescription to the pharmacist. The pharmacist will normally require two more working days to prepare your prescription.
Please do not leave your prescription requests to the last minute. Urgent prescription requests reduce the doctors availability for appointments and this then impacts on other patients.
Repeat prescriptions are regularly monitored by the doctors and you may be asked to make an appointment for a medication review.
If you are visually impaired and would like an A4 size list of your repeat prescriptions, please ask the receptionist.
IN ORDER TO ELIMINATE MISTAKES, PRESCRIPTIONS MAY NOT BE REQUESTED OVER THE TELEPHONE
