Repeat Prescriptions


If you are on regular, long term medication and the doctor decides that you can get another supply of your medication without being seen each time, they will tell you and designate your medication as a ‘repeat’. For most patients the normal supply is for 2 months (although this may vary with the type of medicine and at the doctor's discretion). We aim to process a Repeat Prescription within 48 hours of receipt.

Please see our patient information leaflet for further information 

Repeat Prescription

To request a repeat prescription you should mark the items clearly that you require and either deliver or post the request slip to the surgery.

If you have mislaid your request slip, forms are available at reception to complete.

Please do not telephone for prescriptions (except in an absolute emergency or you are housebound) as this can obstruct urgent calls and may lead to incorrect prescribing.

  • If you have more than one repeat prescription, please try and order all your items together.
  • Clearly indicate where you would like the prescription sent to. You can collect your prescription from the surgery, we can post it to you if you enclose a stamped addressed envelope or we can send your prescription to selected local pharmacies, please ask reception for details.
  • If you are receiving any medication which is not on your request form, please add this clearly on the request slip and this will be added after verification with the doctor.
  • If any printed item of medication is no longer required by you, please ask for it to be deleted.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.



Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
