Repeat Prescriptions



If your doctor agrees, you may be able to obtain repeat prescriptions without an appointment.

green_pill_spillMethods for ordering your prescriptions are:

  1. In Person: Return the counterfoil of the prescription document indicating the medication you require to dispensary. A drop box is provided at reception to enable you to deliver your prescription without having to wait.
  2. By Managed Repeat: Would you like to us to manage your repeat medications for you?  We can offer you a service whereby when you pick up your prescription, you can tell us what you need for the following month and we will give you a date to pick it up, rather than you needing to reorder. 
  3. By Post:  Post the counterfoil of the prescription document indicating the medication you require to the surgery, enclosing a stamped self-addressed envelope. If posting please remember to give at least one weeks notice for a first class stamp and longer if using second class.
  4. Chemist:  The local chemist do a collection service for the surgery. Please ask your chemist for details.
