REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

If you need to take regular medication your doctor may give you a REPEAT prescription without the need for you to be seen every time in surgery. 

A repeat prescription is an item of medication that has been approved by a doctor for issue at intervals and can be signed by any Doctor in the Practice.

PLEASE ALLOW 5 WORKING DAYS FOR US TO PROCESS YOUR REPEAT PRESCRIPTION FROM WHEN WE RECEIVE THE REQUEST.

Repeat prescriptions can now be ordered from this website. To register for online ordering you will need a username and password only obtainable in person from the surgery.

LEAFLET - REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

ACUTE PRESCRIPTIONS

An acute prescription is an item of medication that is not normally repeated beyond the initial prescribed course. Acute prescriptions need to be issued by an authorised clinician.
Certain Items e.g. Calpol, head lice treatments and cold sore creams can be purchased over the counter from the pharmacy. You may be asked to attend for medication review for other treatments to ensure they are still appropriate for your condition.

Antibiotics are rarely prescribed over the telephone and are not routinely prescribed for the common cold as this is a viral infection.

This may take longer than 2 working days to process. Please order these items in good time.
