Guide to Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions will be issued at the doctors’ discretion and are normally for patients on long-term medication. Requests for prescriptions can be made in writing, using your repeat prescription slip, by using our online services, or by calling in and completing a form in the surgery.

Your prescription will be ready for collection within 48 hours and if you wish we can pass this through to a local chemist for dispensing or collection. We have an arrangement with a local chemist where they will return the medication to the medical centre for you to collect – please let us know.

Alternatively, you may post your request with a stamped addressed envelope to the medical centre and the prescription will be posted back to you.
