If you are on regular treatment you may request a repeat prescription by:
- Leaving your request at the surgery. We have a special box in the lobby by the entrance door;
- Requesting online via the link at the top of this page. This is a secure ordering service and requires registration. Please ask at reception for a registration form or download one from our forms page. If you want a paper prescription to be sent to a specific pharmacy, please tell us when you order or register for an electronic prescription;
- Sending it to the surgery. If you enclose a stamped self-addressed envelope with your request we will send it back to you in the post. Always use the computer slip which is attached to your prescription when you collect it. If you do not have a computer slip, please get a prescription request form from Reception. We can deliver your prescription to the Wollaston branch surgery. Tell the receptionist if you would like to collect it from there;
- Most local pharmacies operate a collection and/or delivery service.
Always allow us 48 working hours from request to get your prescription ready for you. Please do not wait until you are nearly out of medication before you reorder. We cannot, for safety reasons, accept email or telephone requests for repeat prescriptions.
Electronic Prescription Service
Your prescriptions can be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice, thereby eliminating the need for a paper prescription. If you are currently receiving a paper prescription and would prefer an electronic prescription, please complete a consent and pharmacy nomination form. You can download a copy from our forms page.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
