Some patients who are on regular medicines may be issued with repeat prescriptions without necessarily consulting a Doctor every time.
When repeat prescriptions are collected a computer print out of your medicines will be attached and should be filled in when ordering next time.
You can also have your prescriptions sent electronically to your chosen pharmacy. Ask reception to set this up for you.
A Doctor will still need to see you at least once a year to review your medication. This review date is at the bottom of your repeat prescription slip. If you come to reception we can often do your prescription while you wait if your checks are up to date and the drugs are due. If you leave your prescription with us please allow 24 hours for collection of your new prescription.
Local chemists offer a prescription collection service from our surgery. This saves you at least one trip to the surgery and you can go directly to the chemist for your medications. Please discuss with your nearest chemist.
