How to get a Prescription
If you think you may need a prescription medicine, please make an appointment with the doctor. If you have previously been given a prescription for a straightforward condition, such as hay fever, we may be able to issue a prescription after a telephone consultation. Please ask the receptionist. Your local pharmacist should be able to give you advice for non-prescription medication.
Please do not ask the receptionist for any medication unless it is on your repeat medication list as they are unable to authorise any other medication.
How to get a Repeat Prescription
We have a computerised repeat prescription service. Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients with long-term conditions who receive regular treatment. Your doctor will decide who can have a repeat presecription. From time to time we will ask you to see your doctor to review your medication. We do this to monitor your illness and medication.
If you have a repeat prescription card you can order prescriptions without needing to see the doctor. Please contact us, stating which items you require, in one of the following ways:
- Ask at reception
- By post
- Online prescriptions (ask at reception for login details)
All prescriptions can now be delivered electronically to a pharmacy of your choice
Wherever possible please give the exact drug names when ordering. The prescription will normally be ready within 48 hours. If you want it posted back to you please provide a stamped addressed envelope.
