Repeat prescriptions are issued by prior arrangement with your doctor. If you are on regular medication, you should receive sufficient to last for a 28 day period. If it does not, speak to a receptionist for further advice. You may need a medication review with your doctor.
Requests for repeat prescriptions can be made by:
- Post – send it to us with a SAE.
- Hand it into reception using the right hand side of your prescription - tick which items you require.
- Post it in the secure box just outside our reception area if the desk is busy.
- Online using SystmOnline. Click here for details of this service. Once registered you will be given information to enable you to create your username and password. Speak to reception for further information.
Please allow 48 hours to issue the prescription. Patients are responsible for ordering their medication in good time, ensuring that they do not run out.
In line with prescribing safety recommendations we do not take orders for repeat prescriptions over the telephone unless the patient is housebound.
Many chemists offer a free service: they will request and collect your prescription and deliver your medication – please ask your local pharmacist for more information.
