Ordering your repeat prescription by a quick and simple telephone call. You will be speaking to a dedicated person who will have time to answer any queries you may have about your repeat prescription. They will discuss your medication requirements and are able to alert you if a medication review is needed. Please call 01158 550 260.
When will my prescription be ready?
Once you have ordered your medication online, or telephoned the Medicines Order Line, your prescription will be authorised by your GP and sent to the pharmacy of your choice within two working days.
Please allow a further two working days for the pharmacy to dispense your medication. Please request repeat prescriptions well in advance of public holidays. The time allowed to process prescriptions is in accordance with BMA and pharmaceutical authority guidance.
The surgery is unable to process “blue” prescriptions. These must be obtained from the hospital that issued the prescription.
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.
