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.
Please note prescription requests cannot be taken over the telephone.
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.
Travelling abroad and Prescriptions
If travelling abroad for more than 3 months you need to obtain your medication in the country of your destination. Additionally, if you need medical advice, then please register with a local doctor in your country of destination as we cannot give advice to overseas patients. For more information please see the link below:
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.
