Repeat prescriptions are issued using a computerised system. A repeat medication request form is attached to each prescription with details of your medication and the approximate date you should see a doctor for a review.
You should tick the items required when you need a further supply and either:
A stamped addressed envelope should be enclosed if you wish your prescription to be returned by post. Please allow two working days for repeat prescriptions to be processed and signed. Please also ensure you allow ample time for postal delays. When your review date is close, please make an appointment to see a doctor. We regret that prescription requests cannot be accepted by telephone, as this can lead to dangerous mistakes. If you have lost or do not have a repeat prescription form, please write down your name and address, the name and strength of medication required and how often you take the item you require and hand it in at reception.

Repeat dispensing is a system designed for patients whose regular medication is stable and ongoing and who use one of the pharmacies taking part in the scheme. Your GP may issue a batch of prescripions covering a period of time and these are held at the pharmacy of your choice for you to collect on a monthly basis. This cuts down the number of times you have to visit the surgery. Your doctor can tell you if you are suitable for taking part in this scheme. Further details are available at reception.
