Repeat Prescriptions

medicine_bottleIf you need a repeat prescription on a regular basis, your doctor will organise this on the computer. You may then obtain your prescriptions by

  • Handing in your computerised slip at reception – please allow 48 hours for this (excluding weekends and public holidays)
  • Posting in your slip to us (please enclose a stamped addressed envelope). Please allow 7 days for this (excluding weekends and public holidays)
  • Special Requests – your doctor may decide that your medication is unsuitable to be put on computerised repeat prescription. However, you may be able to request this some times without seeing the doctor. Please allow five working days for this (excluding weekends and public holidays).

You can make prior arrangements to have your repeat prescription delivered to the pharmacist of your choice. Please allow four working days for this if computerised and seven if this is a special request. (Excluding weekends and public holidays.)
