From 1st May 2019 we will no longer accept telephone requests for medication.
Repeat medication can be requested by:
- Ordering online (see below)
- completing the request slip attached to your prescription
- via your chemist
- By Post
To access this service for the first time you will need to obtain a registration form from reception. For security reasons these details can only be given to you in person. You will be asked to provide some form of photo identity (passport or photo driving licence). Please call into the practice and ask a receptionist for details.
Please do not request medication online for new presenting problems. You must see or speak to your GP first.
Online access (teenagers) policy: Parents or guardians of children under 13 can register on behalf of the child for online access. Access to the service will be removed when the child reaches the age of 13. Any patient can register in person to access the service on reaching the age of 16. Please click here for our full policy.
Your prescription can be sent electronically to your nominated chemist. If you use a regular chemist, let us know so that your prescriptions can be sent directly to them. Alternatively, all local pharmacies offer a collection service for prescriptions. This allows you to collect your medicines direct from your chosen pharmacy without the need to visit the surgery. Please see your pharmacist for details (click here for a list of local pharmacists).
Please allow 48 hours from requesting your medication to collecting your prescription from the surgery. Alternatively, if you have a nominated pharmacy, please check regarding their collection timescale.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see your doctor at least once a year to review these regular medications. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment at least once a year.
