Clinics and Services

Repeat prescriptions

We run a computerised prescription service for patients on regular medication approved by your doctor.  You should drop the tear-off slip into the surgery (box inside front door).  Remember, using this slip helps avoid any confusion with your medication.  We also accept postal requests if you enclose a stamped addressed envelope.

Receptionists are unable prescribe any items not approved by your GP and are unable to issue any medication that is not due to be re-ordered.  We require a minimum of 48 hours to process your request.  Please do not wait until you are almost out of your medication before requesting more.  Your doctors aim to review your repeat medications at least once a year.  Watch out for a reminder at the bottom of your repeat slip.
