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:
- 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.
