Acute Prescriptions

Please note if you are requesting new medication or one that you have not had for a while you must give a reason for the request otherwise the prescription will be rejected.

Prescriptions are generally issued by our computer. The left side of the sheet is the usual prescription for the chemist; the right hand side of the prescription sheet may show a list of prescription items, which a doctor has authorised to be repeated. At the bottom of any such list is a review date. This means that you have to make an appointment to have your prescription reviewed on or around that date. Each time you see a doctor, this review date may be extended appropriately

Repeat Prescriptions

Please note if you are requesting new medication or one that you have not had for a while you must give a reason for the request otherwise the prescription will be rejected.

Repeat prescriptions may be ordered by bringing or sending the right hand side of your prescription to the surgery, ticking the items needed.

Prescriptions can now be ordered online via the link at the top of this page. This service will also send you a message to let you know when your request has been actioned.

Important Notice: Prescriptions will be ready the 48 hours from ordering.

Prescriptions will not be given to children under the age of 16 unless they have written authorisation.

If it is difficult to collect your prescription, a local chemist will usually deliver the items for you. Let the surgery know the chemist of your choice, and we will forward the prescription accordingly.

Medication Reviews

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 notification should appear on your repeat slip.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
