The surgery will issue your medication every 28 days. This is in
line with national and local guidance due to safety and wastage.
You can order your repeat prescriptions in the following ways:
- Online. Through this website or through the NHS App.
- By post
- In person - prescription box at Reception
- Through your local Pharmacy
Whichever system is used, please ensure your requirements are clearly indicated.
Please allow two working days for the prescription request to be processed, giving sufficient notice before the medication runs out.
Prescriptions requested more than one week early will NOT be dispensed early unless the dates involve pharmacy closures such as Bank Holidays, or personal holidays. Please put a note on the request if that is the case.
In the interests of safe patient care, the patient must have an annual medication review with the doctor to assess needs and to check the effect of the prescribed medication. Should this review not take place a repeat medication cannot be guaranteed. The computerised printout of the medication list clearly states when the review is due. Please ensure an appointment is made for this time to ensure that you do not run out of your medication.

PLEASE ONLY ORDER WHAT YOU NEED . Unused prescription medicines cost the NHS in the UK an estimated £300million every year.
We would like to inform patients who are going into hospital that they need to take with them an UP TO DATE list of all their medication. Please ask at reception and they will be happy to provide this for you.
