Patients on regular medication may be issued with a repeat prescription without needing to see the doctor.
When a prescription is issued a list of regular medication is attached. When a repeat prescription is required you should tick the relevant box(es) for the medicine required and then hand the form into reception. A box is provided on the desk.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notifications should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to the issue of further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
