If you are on regular medication you will be issued with a repeat prescription slip. You may request repeat prescriptions by ticking the items required on the slip. This can then be handed in at the reception desk or to the pharmacist that usually dispenses your prescription. You may post the request to the surgery if you prefer (please enclose a reply paid envelope if you want the prescription returned to you).
The Surgery will need 3 working days from receipt of any request to process your prescription and then will send the new prescription to your chosen pharmacy. Please make sure you plan this timescale into your request (i.e. 3 working days plus time for the pharmacy to process the prescription) to avoid running out of medication. You may prefer to collect the prescription from reception, again please allow enough time from your request for the prescription to be printed, signed and sorted.
You can also sign up to request your medication ‘on line’for more information and, if signed up, to make an online medication request. You will need to come in to the surgery to register for this service.
