Repeat Prescriptions (01655 883922)
Non-urgent advice: Notice
MEDICINES ARE NOT IN SHORT SUPPLY. ONLY ORDER MEDICINES YOU NEED. DO NOT ORDER ALL OF YOUR MEDICINES EVERYTIME. TELL US YOUR PREFERRED PHARMACY FOR PRESCRIPTIONS.
In order to allow us to issue the correct medication we ask patients to give the reception staff the details of the tablet, cream etc, that they need.
It is important that you have all the relevant information to hand when ordering your prescriptions, name of drug requested, strength of drug, how often you take it, name of the doctor who usually prescribes this for you and the disposal – which chemist, collect or envelope. This helps us to offer you a fast and efficient service
Prescription Requests made before 10.30am will be ready after 4pm in 3 working days.
Prescription Requests made after 10.30am will be ready 4 working days later after 4pm.

This is found by visiting Patient Access.
Repeat prescriptions can be requested in the following ways:

Remember to ensure you order in plenty of time before your medication runs out.
Contraceptive Pill Requests
Practice Nurse Vicki Smaller will deal with all routine contraceptive pill prescriptions and reviews. Once established on a suitable pill we will ask you to make an appointment for review and further prescription as well as discussing any issues you may have concerning this medication. We also offer other forms of contraception and can discuss this at your review.
If the check up is satisfactory, you will receive two six month prescriptions for the contraceptive pill from the nurse. One can be taken to the pharmacy immediately and one should be kept and taken to the pharmacy when you only have one month supply left.
As soon as you have only one month supply left, make an appointment with the practice nurse for a contraceptive review so there is plenty of time before you run out.
In an emergency we will issue a short supply or we can get a copy of a lost prescription but we will always ask you to come back to the nurse for the annual review when it is due.
Contraceptive pills may be prescribed be in the generic form rather than by a brand name.
