If you regularly need medication, we can generate a ‘repeat request slip’ to request the items needed. This slip must accompany each request to ensure that the correct medication is prescribed; therefore telephone requests cannot be accepted. If the repeat slip is lost or mislaid please submit a written request for the items required.
If you enclose a stamped, addressed envelope, your prescription will be returned to you. Otherwise the request can be dropped in at the surgery or faxed to 01244 313836.
Please note it takes 48 hours (2 full working days) to prepare a prescription, excluding bank holidays and weekends.
You can also order repeat prescriptions online via the link at the top of this page Please ask at reception for more information about how to register for this service.
In order to safeguard your wellbeing, it is necessary for the doctors to review your medication with you regularly. It may be that if you are coming to see your GP on another matter they will perform the review then. Otherwise they may want to talk to you on the telephone or face to face. A reminder will be attached to your prescription when a review is due. If you do not attend for a regular review it may delay the issuing of your repeat prescriptions.
