If you have regular medication you can ask to be given a repeat prescription. This is printed by the computer and should usually be for two months' supply of medication. It includes a certificate for you to keep which entitles you to your next prescription without being seen. To obtain your repeat prescription, either hand in your repeat certificate to reception or post it to the surgery. Alternatively, if you have registered with us you can order your repeat prescription online using the link below.
Please allow 48 working hours for your prescription to be prepared before collection. If you need your prescription posting to you please include a stamped addressed envelope.
Your repeat certificate includes a review date after which it is not valid. If this has expired your prescription will be reviewed again. The review date ensures that you are reviewed at regular intervals by your Doctor or Nurse whilst using long-term medication.
We consider it unsafe to issue prescriptions without production of a repeat certificate.
We do not take repeat prescription requests over the telephone.
