Repeat Prescriptions

If you are on regular medication the doctor may give you a repeat prescription counterfoil which will enable you to order your medication without being seen by the doctor each time.

If you don't have a counterfoil please fill in a request form downloadable HERE.  Please leave the counterfoil or form in the silver collection box on the front of the building, or the green collection box on the gate. Please allow 72 hours for your prescription to be processed (after three full working days).

We are now offering ordering repeat prescriptions with SystmOnline (via the link at the top of this page). To register for your username and password to access the new online prescription and online appointment booking system please bring photo ID to the surgery.

If you post your counterfoil to us, you should allow one week for your request to be returned to you, please enclose a S.A.E.. You should request your repeat prescription well before your supply of drugs has run out. Patients who have not seen a doctor for some time may be asked to make an appointment before their next repeat prescription can be obtained. All local chemists offer a prescription pickup service. Please ask at reception for details.

Please order repeat prescriptions in plenty of time, allowing sufficient time in case appointments are required for Medical Checks, Blood Pressure, Asthma/Diabetic Checks or Blood tests before your medication can be prescribed.

Please note we cannot take prescription requests over the telephone.

In exceptional circumstances we will issue urgent prescription requests, please speak to reception. Please allow time for this to be processed, and arrange to collect collection after 6pm that day.

Clinical Pharmacists in Primary Care

Medicine's safety is becoming more and more of a talking point in the healthcare landscape. With patients taking a variety of medications, and some with complicated comorbidities, the impact and administration of these medicines need to be reviewed in much more detail. Clinical pharmacists are experts in managing medicines and are important members of the multidisciplinary team within primary care networks (PCNs) that will perform Structured Medication Reviews in your surgery. Structured Medication Reviews are designed to optimise patient outcomes and better manage medicine, including intervening on medications that may be causing side effects.
