We operate a repeat prescription system which means that if the doctor puts your medicines on "repeat" you can tick the relevant boxes on the prescription tear-off slip, when your medications are due, and hand (or post) it to reception.
The list of medicines you can order without being seen are listed on your re-order slip which is given to you when you order a prescription. Only the medicines on this list (and any added onto the computer since your last list was printed) can be issued to you without you being seen.
Prescriptions can be ordered on our repeat prescription line. Please select the appropriate option on or telephone system.
We now have available an online prescription ordering service. To register for this please enquire at reception.
You can usually arrange to order your repeat medication from your local pharmacist with their agreement. Please discuss this with them directly. The phone numbers for local pharmacies can be found in the useful numbers section of the website
