A repeat prescription is an item of medication that has been approved by a doctor for issue at intervals and can be signed by any doctor in the practice. Please order these items in good time.
Repeat prescriptions can now be ordered on line from this website. To register for online ordering you will need a registration letter only obtainable in person from the practice. Alternatively, repeat prescriptions can be requested by completing the right hand side of your prescription and handing, posting or faxing it to the surgery.
Please allow 48 hours before collection.
Some Items e.g. Calpol, head lice treatments and cold sore creams can be purchased over the counter from the pharmacy. You may be asked to attend for medication review for other treatments to ensure they are still appropriate for your condition.
Antibiotics are rarely prescribed over the telephone.
An acute prescription is an item of medication that is not for re-issue over a given or continuous period.

If you are receiving repeat medication you will be required to have a medication review every 6-12 months depending on the medication you are on.
This is important, and to ensure that the medication is working correctly (or is not causing a reaction) and for the clinician to assess whether other medication is still appropriate for you.
When your medication review is due, a reminder will show on your prescription counterfoil. Please make an appointment with the Practice Nurse.
If you do not attend a medication review when requested the practice may only produce weekly prescriptions until a medication review has been performed.
