Repeat Prescriptions

If you are on long term medication, you will be given a computerised prescription re-ordering slip.  This allows you to re-order repeat medication without seeing the doctor every time.  After a specified number of repeats you will be required to see the doctor or practice nurse for review to ensure that all is well before further prescriptions are issued. Any inconvenience caused by this is regretted but we feel  the policy is essential to good medical practice.

It will be helpful if you use the re-ordering slip from your last prescription as this  includes  your personal computer number and lists your regular medication.  This slip   should be handed into the surgery prescription office 24 hrs before you need your prescription, indicating which items you require.  You can alternatively post this to us, ticking off the items you require and sending a stamped addressed envelope and we will post your repeat prescriptions back to you.  Repeat prescription can also be requested by telephone on 01772 339469 - quoting your computer number.

Prescriptions can be ordered via our patient access system.  Please register for this service at reception by bringing photo I.D.

The prescription drop off box is now back, situated in the foyer close to the patient check in screen. Please feel free to drop off any prescription requests, be sure to include full patient identififable information such as; name, date of birth, contact number, NHS number/EMIS number (if you know them). The drop off box will be checked several times throughout the day.

Should you need a regular supply of medicines you may find it cheaper to purchase a pre-payment certificate.  Please ask the prescription office for full details.  There are certain medications which will not be prescribed without you seeing the doctor.  Your prescription will normally be ready for collection the following working day. 

Please do not ask the doctor during a consultation or a home visit for a repeat prescription.


The prescription ordering telephone is open Monday - Friday 8.00am-11:45am.

Please consider registering for the online prescription ordering to enable you to order at your convenience. 

The practice is live for electronic prescribing which means if you have nominated a pharmacy to receive your prescriptions, they will receive your prescription directly from the surgery to the pharmacy.  However, there are some items that cannot be sent electronically.
