The surgery runs a computerised repeat prescription system. Once your doctor has agreed that you can have your medication on repeat prescription, you will usually get a repeat request slip given to you when you collect your medication from the Pharmacy or Surgery.
The surgery provides a repeat dispensing service. If you have been on the same medication, strength and dose for one year or more, the Doctor may be happy for us to provide the chemist with your prescriptions for a whole year. You will need to complete a repeat dispensing consent form which are available at Reception. Once this form has been completed your request for this service will be given to you Doctor for authorisation. If your Doctor is not happy for you to join this service, you will be contacted with the reason why. If the Doctor is happy for you to use this service, the Prescription clerk will action your request and will contact you within 10 working days. You will then be informed of the next steps. This service lasts for a year so a new consent form must be completed before a new batch of prescriptions can be generated.
You can order repeat prescriptions in five ways
In Person - Just tick off the medication you require on your repeat slip and drop it into the collection box in the Surgery. If the Surgery is closed, you can put it in the post box at the front of the building. These boxes are emptied on a daily basis.
