medication4Repeat Prescriptions

Patients on regular medication are provided with a repeat prescription counterfoil attached to their prescription listing the drugs they take regularly.

When a further supply of medication is needed please tick the items required and return it to the surgery either in person or through the post. You may also order on-line.

The prescription will be available for collection within 72 hours of receiving it. Please note however that you will be best advised to make sure that you order regular medication in advance of any public holiday periods when the surgeries will be closed and in doing so, please take in to account the length of time that the surgery will be closed for. This is particularly important during extended holiday periods, for example at Christmas, New Year and Easter, when surgeries may be closed for longer periods than usual. If in doubt please enquire at Reception for advice.

If you require the prescription to be posted back to you, please accompany your request with a stamped addressed envelope. Remember to allow more time if it is being posted. We will accept handwritten and faxed requests but please be as clear and precise as possible, stating name of medication and strength of tablet.

The surgery fax number is 01332 737778.

Prescription requests will only be accepted 1 week in advance and will be issued within 72 hours.
