Repeat Prescriptions

medication6Repeat prescriptions are issued at the doctors’ discretion and are normally for patients on long term treatment.

Please hand in your request in writing three working days before you need it, preferably using the computer slip attached to your last prescription.

We need to know your full name, address and the name, strength and dose of each medication.

We do not take prescription requests over the phone as this can easily lead to mistakes. If you enclose a sae your prescription can be posted on to you.


Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a Doctor at least once a year to review your regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays in processing further prescriptions.
