HOW DO I.... OBTAIN A REPEAT PRESCRIPTION?
If you are on long-term
medication you will be issued with a repeat prescription. You will receive a tear-off
slip which lists all your current medication so that you can indicate the items
you require. Please allow 48 hours for your prescription to be ready. If you have
run out of medication a prescription will be provided, though this is not normal
practice and you are requested to ensure that you always have sufficient medication
to last you while we process your request. There will be occasions when your doctor
will want to see you before any more prescriptions are issued. It is important
that you book an appointment as soon as possible for a review.
The practice has recently introduced a new system to allow patients to order repeat prescriptions online. In order to use the new system patients will need a username and password which will be provided on request at the practice reception. We hope this makes the process of ordering much easier for our patients.
