What is a repeat prescription?
When the doctor puts you on a medication that you need to take for a prolonged period you will be given your medication, together with a paper slip enabling you to re-order your medication without seeing the doctor. The doctor will decide how many repeats of your medication they would like you to have before reviewing you again in clinic.
What to do with your repeat prescription slip
We aim to make re-ordering repeat prescriptions as accessible, efficient and as easy as possible.
With every issue of a repeat prescription, there is a re-order slip. By ticking against the medication you require and returning the slip (either by dropping it in to the surgery, faxing it or posting it), a new prescription will be generated.
You can request a repeat prescription in the following ways:
- Via our Online Services
- In person
- By post using the slip we issue with most prescriptions. If you enclose a stamped, addressed envelope, the prescription will be sent to you.
- Via a local pharmacy
We offer a 48 hour service for repeat prescriptions being collected from our surgery.
This can take up to an additional 48 hours if collecting from your pharmacy.
