We have made a slight change to our prescription form. The form is very similar to the existing form and self explanatory but you will need to delete any bookmarks you have to the existing form as it will no longer be available. Any details you have saved will no longer available

Repeat Prescriptions

Please allow 72 working hours for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. Do not leave this to the last minute especially when going on holiday. 

If you need medication regularly you should receive a repeat prescription form attached to your prescription. Please bring or send the form to us indicating what you need.

Postal requests need a SAE for posting back.

Alternatively you may order online via the link at the top of this page.

Please note prescription requests cannot be taken over the telephone.

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 or may be asked to attend the practice for a blood test. Failure to do so my mean that medications have to be removed from your prescription.

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

Early Renewal Prescription Requests

If you need to request a renewal prescription early before its expiry date then please can you explain the reasons as to why this is required. This is to reduce rejection rates.

 

For example a 2 monthly prescription will have a cut off rejection time of 3 wks..ie if you ask for a renewal before 3 wks of the date when the prescription is due then your request is automatically rejected.

You are free to have your medication dispensed by a pharmacy of your choice. Please click on the link below to view a NHS poster detailing what to do if undue pressure is being placed upon you to use a certain pharmacy which is not of you choosing.
