Repeat Prescriptions

These are provided by computer and usually you will be asked to come in to see your Doctor at regular intervals to have the medication reviewed. Please note that in the interest of patient safety it is practice policy to refuse to issue further medication if a patient repeatedly fails to attend for their medication review. However you will receive written notice of this with your final prescription.

Please bring or send your computer slip for repeat prescriptions to the practice, clearly marking which items you require and allowing at least 72 hours for the request to be processed.

To avoid errors, requests for repeat prescriptions are NOT accepted by telephone although faxed requests may be accepted, although we would request that these include a telephone contact number in case the fax is illegible.

If you have registered for the On Line Appointments service you will also be able to request your repeat medication on line as well.

We can now process your prescription electronically. This system is called the EPS or Electronic Prescribing System. This means no paper prescription is printed out. The request for medication is sent electronically to the pharmacy of your choice.

If you would like to use the EPS service please fill in the form at reception. Alternatively if you would still like to have a paper prescription you may still choose a pharmacy from the list and your prescription will be collected by the pharmacy and you may then collect your medication direct from that pharmacy.

If you choose this option you should allow extra time for the pharmacy to pick up the prescription.

We are not a dispensing practice.
