Repeat prescriptions will be issued at the doctor's discretion and are normally for patients on long-term treatment. Requests for prescriptions should be made in writing and either posted to us or put in the prescription box at reception. We are unable to take orders or issue repeat prescriptions at weekends, public holidays or out of normal surgery hours. Please allow three complete working days before collection and make allowances for weekends and public holidays. Where possible give exact drug names when ordering.
Patients sending a stamped, addressed envelope with their prescription request can have them posted back to them. Please allow one week for this service.
To avoid errors, repeat prescription requests are not taken over the telephone or fax (except for the housebound after agreement with the doctor).
