It is possible to receive repeat prescriptions for medication you are taking without necessarily seeing a doctor.
For this purpose you should present a written request for the medication you require at least three working days before it is needed.
You may also request a repeat prescription on-line. To do this you will first need to obtain a PIN number from reception; you may do this by telephone or by written request.
For collection of your medicines, - rather than just the prescription - please allow 5 working days. These days do not include Saturdays, Sundays & Bank Holidays.
Special Note: Ordering a Prescription On-Line
If you order on-line the days for collecting your medication are as follows:
|Day of Ordering On-Line||Day for Collection|
|Saturday / Sunday||Thursday|
Please note that the opening times for the Dispensary are:
Monday to Friday: 8.30am to 1.00 pm and 2.00 pm to 6.00 pm.
Please note that prescription requests will not be taken over the telephone.
Contacting the Dispensary by Telephone
We have recently changed the way we deal with telephone calls. Due to the high volume of work that we are receiving, we need to process this first so that we can get our daily order off before the lunchtime cut-off.
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.
Remember always to store medicines out of the reach of children. Please read the bottle carefully before taking any medication and if in any doubt consult your Pharmacist or GP. Replace any out of date medicines and return them to your local chemist for disposal.
