Repeat Prescriptions:

All patients who have a repeat prescription must be assessed by the doctor annually.

  • All private repeat prescriptions are issued for a maximum of 6 months
  • GMS prescriptions are issued every 3, 4 or 6 months.
  • Prescriptions must be submitted in writing to the surgery,either by hand, by post or by email.
  • There is a 48 hour turn around time for prescriptions.

It is important when requesting a repeat prescription that as much information as possible is given to the administration staff to ensure all patient details are correct. Some patients medications can change over time so it is important to keep note of changes and ammend requested prescription lists where possible as this avoids waste, over ordering and ensures the patient is on medication best suited to their condition.
