From the 1st September 2019, pharmacies will no longer be able to order your medication for you. You must order either online or in reception. To help reduce the queues at the desk please fill out the repeat prescription request form at the table in the foyer.

For certain conditions requiring long-term medication, you will be able to obtain repeat prescriptions without having to see the doctor every time. Repeat prescriptions may be requested by:-
- Filling out the prescription form in our main reception.
- Online via this website
It is necessary to give the practice 48 hours notice before the prescription can be issued. It is, therefore, in your own interest to ensure that you have sufficient medication to last until you actually receive your prescription. Pharmacies also require 48 hours to process your prescription so it's good idea to allow at least a week when ordering your prescription.
Due to the amount of prescriptions we action each week it is not possible for us to accept requests any earlier than 3 weeks in advance.
If you're going in holidays or anything changes please let us know.
Where possible, always use the right hand side of your reminder slip, marking your requirements clearly. Repeat scripts are regularly monitored by the Doctors and you may be asked to make an appointment to review your medication.
If you require a prescription for the contraceptive pill at this time, please complete a form (being kept in the foyer of the surgery) and post through the letter box.
Please note the practice requires 48 hours notice for prescriptions from patients using this service. If you order your prescription on line on either a Saturday or Sunday your request will not be processed until Monday. Your prescription will be ready for collection on Wednesday.
