If you think you may need a prescription for 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 if it is on your list of 'repeats'. Please ask the receptionist. Your local pharmacist should be able to give you advice for non-prescription medication.
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 prescription. From time to time we will ask you to see your doctor or nurse to review your medication. We do this to monitor your illness and medication. You can ask for a repeat prescription:
by phoning after 10.30 am;
by calling into the surgery when the reception is open;
by post; or
Wherever possible please give the exact drug names when ordering. Please allow at least 24 hours before collection at the pharmacy, or we can hold the prescription for you at the surgery for you to collect and to take to a pharmacy of your choice.
