Prescriptions

Patients on repeat medication will receive a computer produced prescription form with a tear off sheet on the right hand side.

Requests for repeat prescriptions should be made one week before your medicine is finished.

To request a Repeat Prescription you can:

  • Take it in person to the appropriate surgery
  • Send it by post, or
  • Request a repeat prescription via our Online Services

If you do not have the tear off sheet, please remember to give:

  • Quantity
  • Dosage and
  • Drug name
  • Your full name and date of birth
  • Preferred method of collection of the prescription, i.e. the surgery or pharmacy.

Your prescription will be ready for collection within 48 hours.

If you enclose a stamped addressed envelope, it will be returned to you by post.

Many chemists offer a delivery and collection service. This means that you do not have to come to the surgery to collect your prescription and then take it to a chemist. Speak to your preferred chemist directly for details.

If you are no longer taking particular medication please let us know so that it can be deleted from your medication record.
