If you receive regular treatment, you may complete the repeat slip attached to your last prescription or put your request in writing ensuring that you put your name, address and date of birth on the letter. We regret we cannot accept repeat prescription requests over the telephone.
Requests received at the practice will usually be ready within 48 hours (excluding Bank Holidays & Weekends) .
You can post your prescription request to the surgery and if a stamp addressed envelope is enclosed we will return this to you. Please ensure you leave enough time to account for the postal service.
You will notice on the bottom of repeat slips your review date. You must arrange an appointment with a nurse, or doctor, for the monitoring of your condition, and to check that your conyinuin medication is appropriate
Patient Notice- Change in quantity of drugs issued
Some patients may notice change in the quantity of drugs issued on their script. National policy only allow doctors to issue 28 day supply of medication, however as a practice we have reached a compromise to offer 56 days supply.
We will be introducing this change from 1 July 2015 and only patients who have been issued 84 day supply will be affected.
If you have any concerns on how this change may affect you, please speak to your pharmacist or GP.
