Once authorised by a doctor, medications that have been put onto repeat can be requested from the surgery without the need to see a doctor.
This can be done in person at the surgery (using your repeat slip or a form at the surgery), by post (if you enclose a stamped addressed envelope) or using the vision online service.
We are unable to accept repeat prescription requests over the telephone unless you are a registered housebound patient.
Routine Repeat Prescriptions
Please allow 72 hours for repeat prescription requests to be processed. These must be made in person at the surgery.
Any queries, or when your medication comes up for its review date, the repeat prescription has to be referred to a doctor and therefore, there may be a delay in completing your prescription request.
Urgent Repeat Prescriptions
We will try our best to accommodate any urgent requests but, cannot guarantee that this will be possible, so please ensure you leave plenty of time for prescription requests to be processed.
