Repeat Prescription Policy

Please order your medication before you run out and ensure you have enough medication as up to 48 hours is required for the request to be processed.  Regretfully we are unable to take prescription requests over the phone as errors can occur.

Repeat prescriptions will usually be supplied for 28 days. 

We prefer to send prescriptions electronically directly to your nominated pharmacy because this is reliable, secure, confidential and paperless.

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to review these regular medications with a member of the practice team at least once a year. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment when requested to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

Certain medicines require blood tests to be done so that they can be monitored for safety. Patients must comply with requests for blood tests.

Medicines required for travel must be discussed with the practice in advance. The supply is restricted to 3 months.

Medicines waste is a serious and growing problem within the NHS. Sometimes patients and carers continue to request more repeat medicines than they need and stockpile at home.

Please order the medications you require as we do not order them automatically

These savings can be invested into more care and services
