This is an arrangement for the mutual benefit of patients and doctors. It allows you to have a supply of drugs you need regularly without seeing a doctor every time. Not all drugs are considered repeat items, and it may be that you will be required to see a doctor at least every 6 months to review yuor medication.
There are 2 ways to order your repeat medication:
- Prescription Slip
- Via the Internet Click Here
If you wish to register to order your repeat prescriptions online please bring two forms of ID (one with photo) to the Practice and we will register your for this service.
Please note that our receptionists are only allowed to issue drugs that are on "repeat prescription" (all prescriptions are then checked and signed by the doctor).
We have in- built safety systems that alert us if your medication is being requested too early, and warns us if a review of your medication is required.
If your prescription request is not straightforward, there may be a delay and you may be asked to see a doctor. Your safety is paramount.
We endeavour to have your repeat prescription ready within 48 hours. Please ask the receptionists, if things do not appear to be straightforward.
Safe repeat prescribing is a time consuming procedure and there may be delays, so always request your medication at least 72 hours before they run out.
