Patients who are on regular medication will require repeat prescriptions and for a safer and speedier service, repeat prescriptions are now computerised. Your doctor will have entered onto the computer what medication you are taking, and each time a new prescription is written by the computer a new request form is also generated for you to make your request. Requests for repeat prescriptions must be in writing. They are not taken over the telephone as errors can occur in verbal communication.
- Please allow two working days for your prescription to be processed.
- If you have more than one repeat prescription please try and order all your items together
- Clearly indicate where you would like your prescription to be sent. We can send the prescription to your home address but remember to enclose a stamped addressed envelope.
Or you can collect your prescription from the surgery. Some local chemists run a collection/delivery service.
