Repeat Prescriptions

medication4This surgery operates a 28 day repeat prescribing policy with annual medication reviews. Repeat prescription can be ordered from your usual branch by filling in the return slip on your computer printed/generated prescription.

You can also order your repeat medication online once you have registered for the service.

Orders will not taken over the telephone.

Please allow 48 hours notice i.e. 2 working days once you have put in your request to enable us to deal with it. We continually monitor the cost of our prescribed medicines, therefore your prescriptions may change. We may be unable to provide prescriptions for some diabetic testing strips. We provide for all type one diabetics and type two who are insulin treated or sometimes ones who are at risk of hypoglycaemia.

Due to recent changes in NHS prescribing, GPs will no longer be issuing prescriptions for some common conditions such as:

Sore throats

Conjunctivitis

Coughs, Colds and Nasal Congestion

Excessive Sweating

Indigestion and Heartburn

Infrequent Migraine

Oral Thrush

Head Lice

Minor Pain requiring Paracetamol etc

Instead of contacting the surgery for an appointment patients are asked to visit their pharmacy for advice and over the counter medication.

New Policy for Collection of Controlled Drug Prescriptions

To ensure we comply with special regulations to ensure that safe practices are being followed when these types of drugs are prescribed to patients, we now need to be certain that prescriptions containing controlled drugs are only given to those authorised to collect them.  Unless you have nominated somebody or a pharmacy to collect these on your behalf, prescriptions will only be handed out to the patient named on them.  If you wish to authorise collection by somebody else, you must complete and sign the relevant form.  ID must be shown at each collection.
