Prescriptions

Ordering Repeat Prescriptions

You can order a repeat prescription in the following ways:

We have a separate telephone line for repeat prescriptions where you can leave requests for regular medications as agreed with your doctor.

The line is open 24 hours a day. The telephone number is 01453 825 690.

Dispensing

We are a dispensing practice but can only dispense medicines to those living more than a mile (as the crow flies) from the nearest chemist. Medicines will normally be available at time of consultation or within two working days.

If you wish to speak to the dispenser, please leave a message and your telephone number and someone will get back to you as soon as possible. The messages are picked up at regular intervals throughout the day.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, or our practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications. Notification should appear on your repeat slip highlighted to act as a reminder. Please ensure an appointment is made before your medication runs out,  preferably at least two weeks before your next prescription becomes due.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

If you have been advised by the surgery to submit a medication review, please complete our Medication Review form. Please visit our Consulting Room to book an appointment.
