Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions are for patients that require medication on a long-term basis.


A regular check up with the GP or practice nurse is required every 6 to 12 months to ensure the medication you are being prescribed is still appropriate.


If you miss a medication review appointment your GP may refuse to issue you with a repeat prescription until this review has taken place.


Some medicines such as HRT and the contraceptive pill are not available on repeat prescription and you will require a nurse or GP appointment before a repeat can be issued.


For safety reasons we do not allow repeat prescriptions to be arranged over the telephone.


To save you visiting the surgery, you can register with a chemist who will organize this on your behalf and you can collect your medicines direct from the chemist with one visit.


Please allow at least 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your repeat prescription to be processed and signed by your GP.
