Patients on repeat medication will have their medication reviewed at least once a year and may be asked to make an appointment with the GP, Practice Nurse or the practice Pharmacist. If you need to make an appointment notification should appear on your repeat slip or via the pharmacist. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment or speak to reception to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for regular prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into consideration when ordering your medications. Patients using the postal service should allow longer.
You can arrange to have your medication delivered to your home by your local chemist. Please ask your pharmacist about this service.
We do not usually issue contraceptive pills, patches or rings on repeat prescription. Please come to the well-woman clinic, or make a GP or Nurse appointment. We are usually able to provide 3, 6 or 12 month supplies, depending on how frequently you need following up.
We are usually able to issue a short (1 month) urgent supply to give you time to book a "pill check" if you are just about to run out!
