Requests for repeat prescriptions should be written and either placed in the box in the entrance lobby, posted to the surgery, ordered online or via your pharmacy. We DO NOT accept telephone requests. We will, however, accept a faxed request to 01245 344476.
Most repeat prescription requests should be by the computer-printed form, detached from the previous prescription, which only requires the appropriate item to be ticked. Please allow TWO FULL WORKING DAYS BEFORE COLLECTION. This allows time for the prescriptions to be printed, checked and signed by a doctor before collection, or provide a stamped self-addressed envelope. Requests for other prescription items will also be subject to this timetable.
Repeat prescriptions should be collected after 2.30pm each day from reception.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS ARE REQUESTED IN GOOD TIME AND ALWAYS WELL BEFORE THE MEDICATION HAS RUN OUT.
IF, IN EXCEPTIONAL CIRCUMSTANCES, WE AGREE TO ISSUE A PRESCRIPTION ON THE SAME DAY, THIS WILL NOT BE READY FOR COLLECTION UNTIL AFTER 6.00PM.
If you are interested in having your prescriptions go electronically from the surgery to a nominated pharmacy please request this at the pharmacy you wish to nominate.
