Ordering Your Prescription
Repeat prescriptions can only be accepted in writing, this is to ensure that mistakes are not made.
You can order your prescription in the following ways:
- Our online service
- Royal Mail
- Using the repeat form
- Using AskMyGP
- Email email@example.com
If you are using the repeat request form and the practice is closed please post it through the letterbox, or if we are open please put in the box in reception. Your prescription will normally be available for collection 3 working days after the request has been received:
|Request received on||Prescription ready after 2.30pm on|
Should you request for your prescription to be sent to a pharmacy then you will need to allow 80 hrs from requesting your prescription to picking it up from the pharmacy.
We use Electronic Prescriptions, this means that you prescription can go directly to your designated pharmacy; if you have not yet allocated yourself a nominated pharmacy please contact the surgery and we can arrange this.
Urgent prescription requests made by 12pm can be picked up at 2.30pm, and requests made by 5pm can be picked up at 5.30pm.
Please only request the medication you require.
Prescriptions handed in more than 10 days early, will not be issued.
We have a system in place that allows the doctor to issue batch repeat prescriptions, for medications that are unlikely to change and to be taken long term.
Please indicate on your repeat slip if you would like your medicines considered for 3 month batch prescriptions.
