Ordering a repeat prescription
Problems ordering your prescription online?
Requests for repeat prescriptions must be in writing, or can be made through the online system (once you have registered). For more information click HERE.
Requests should arrive at least 2 working days before the prescription is required. If you have nominated a local Chemist, once signed your script will go electronically to them or they will collect your prescription from the Medical Centre and have it ready to collect for you at your chosen chemist. Please allow 3 working days for this service.
You will be asked to come in for review of your medication from time to time to check whether the drugs you are taking are still appropriate. If you have stopped taking any medication please inform your doctor.
If you are requesting a repeat issue of the contraceptive pill, you will need to have your blood pressure taken every six months, and complete the "pill check" form. You are able to take your blood pressure in the waiting room at the surgery. You can obtain the pill check form from reception, or you can download it here: Pill check form
Urgent Prescription Requests
If your regular medication has stayed the same for six months or more and your last hospital stay was more than six months ago, you may be suitable for Batch Prescribing (this is sometimes called Repeat Dispensing). Please read more here and complete the patient leaflet here.
Over the Counter Medication
NHS England have produced a leaflet for patients on Over the Counter Medication. This is medication that can be purchased from a pharmacy for a range of minor illnesses. The Practice complies with this policy, and you may be asked to purchse your medication rather than it being available on prescription.
