Repeat Prescriptions will not be taken over the phone. We must have all repeat requests in writing or using your nominated pharmacy. We require 48-hours notice for repeat prescriptions. Patients are advised to order responsibly and with enough time so they do not run out of medication.
Arrangements can be made with local chemists that you have chosen for this service so we can keep details on your record. All repeat medication is listed for your re-ordering convenience. We operate this system to avoid errors and wastage. We now offer online services for prescriptions.
We do not accept repeat prescription requests over the phone; this helps reduce the margin for error and wastage when items are not required.
We require 48 hours’ notice for all repeat prescriptions (excluding weekends and bank holidays).
Please Note: The practice no longer provides prescriptions for minor ailments such as coughs, sore throats and colds, you should contact your local pharmacy if you need cough medicine, paracetamol or calpol. These items are no longer routinely available on prescription.
It is your responsibility to arrange delivery requirements for prescriptions and medications with the pharmacy not with the practice as we cannot guarantee timely deliveries if the pharmacies cannot collect prescriptions in time.
Your prescriptions may be stopped if your medication review becomes overdue, if your prescription message indicates this to be the case, contact the surgery as soon as possible for continuity of treatment. The GP will not authorise unmonitored repeat prescribing for pharmacies in the interest of patient safety.
All patients are advised to check their medical exemption certificate validity as the practice will not be responsible for patients claiming free prescriptions without having a valid certificate.
