Repeat Prescriptions

Nice_blue_pillsFor safety reasons, we do not take telephone requests for prescriptions, except by prior arrangement from the housebound. A repeat request slip is attached to each prescription.

Please keep this for your next order. Prescriptions will be ready in 2 working days, or can posted back if you enclose a stamped addressed envelo

We can also accept on-line requests for repeat prescriptions. Please do not let yourself run out of important regular medication.

At intervals, we will ask people on regular medication to make an appointment for a check-up.

 

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications.

Please allow two full working days between requesting and collecting your medication.

Please note: We do not accept telephone appointments for routine repeat prescriptions requests. Only book an appointment if you are due for a review or it is a new drug.
