 COVID 19

DUE TO THE HIGH VOLUME OF TELEPHONE CALLS REQUESTING REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS WE ARE HAVING TO DIRECT OUR PHONE LINES TO AN EMERGENCY SERVICE ONLY LINE FOR PERIODS OF TIME DURING THE DAY TO ALLOW STAFF AND DRS TO PROCESS THE WORKLOAD. PLEASE BE PATIENT AND CONSIDERATE  

Repeat Prescriptions

If your long-term medication has been approved on repeat prescription there are a number of ways you can re-order:

  • In person - drop your repeat slip at reception with the required items clearly marked.
  • By post - send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope and we'll post it back to you.
  • By telephone -  to 02890 618 211  9.30am to 3.00pm
  • OnlineSimply by clicking here.
  • If you select a pharmacy to collect your prescription you MUST inform them that you have ordered one. If you have not already done so please sign and return a consent form to allow us to let your chosen pharmacy collect further prescriptions.
  • Consent to send prescriptions to chosen pharmacy
  • 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.

Please allow two clear working day for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

Please do not ring the surgery to check if prescriptions are ready to collect, this ties up staff and telephone lines.

DO NOT LET YOURSELF RUN OUT!
