It is also possible to submit a prescription request at the surgery in person, please speak to a member of reception upon arrival. If this is not possible we can also receive prescription request via post. in order to do this please ensure that you sign, date and tick the relevant drugs using the computerised request slip attached to your last prescription and post it in to us.

Repeat Prescriptions

If you are a new patient and you are on repeat medication, you will need to make an appointment to see the doctor before you can be issued with your first prescription – this enables the doctor to correctly enter your medication details on your records. It would be helpful if you could bring in your previous prescription counterfoil with you.

If you have any queries regarding your prescriptions please call the prescription line and leave a voicemail and one of the prescriptions team will look into it and be in touch the same day; if before 5pm. Please note prescription requests will NOT be taken over the telephone to avoid errors – Please do not call the surgery to check if a prescription is ready – if there are any problems with your request we will contact you.

We will only issue the items that have been ticked or specifically requested. Requests should be as precise as possible. If you are going on holiday and require your prescription before its due date, please state this on the request slip.

Emergency prescriptions

Use the 111 service to request a limited emergency supply of a medicine you’ve completely run out of.

This must be a medicine you are prescribed regularly, through a repeat prescription.

You will be charged your usual prescription fee. If you do not usually pay, it will be free.
