The doctor may decide that you will require medication on a long term basis and that you should be able to obtain that medication without attending an appointment. This medication will be provided on “repeat prescriptions”. Treatment issued to you in this way will have a slip of paper attached to the prescription which lists all the repeat items you can order. Hold on to this list as you will need it to order further supplies.
To request a supply of this medication you should tick the items on the slip which are required and either post or drop in the slip to the health centre. You can also request your medication by telephoning the receptionist.
Ordering on this website
Already been to the surgery and signed up for online repeats? Just click on the link above, have your username and password ready and explore the online facilities we offer and may offer in the future. If you haven't yet registered for this, call in at the surgery with a passport sized photo (for ID purposes) and our receptionist will give you your username and password there and then.
Please allow 48 hours between the request and collection of the prescription (excluding weekends and bank holidays).
When the receptionist deals with your repeat prescription request she will consider your compliance with the doctors instructions for usage of that medication. The doctor will need to know if you are using the treatment more frequently or less frequently than his instructions suggest. Repeat medication is reviewed by the doctor at least annually. It is not usually necessary for patients to attend an appointment for this review.
If you are requiring a prescription for medication which you have received from us before but does not appear on your repeat prescription list this is not referred to as repeat medication and it may take a little longer to prepare. Please expect to have to provide details about when, why and by whom you were last prescribed the item.
