If you have registered for online facilities, you can use EMIS Access to order repeat prescriptions. Alternatively, you can email us on email@example.com.
Requests for repeat prescriptions are not taken over the telephone (except for housebound patients). There is a request slip on the right hand side of your prescription that you need to complete before your next prescription is due.
All repeat prescription requests take 2 working days (Saturdays not included) to be processed and will be available after 16:00 on the second working day after being placed.
Monday requests will be ready Wednesday after 16:00
Tuesday requests will be ready Thursday after 16:00
Wednesday requests will be ready Friday after 16:00
Thursday requests will be ready Monday after 16:00
Friday requests will be ready Tuesday after 16:00
We would appreciate if patients do not call into surgery to collect prescriptions before 16:00.
It is important that you clearly tick the items you require. You may prefer to post your repeat prescription request to us enclosing a stamped, self-addressed envelope and then we can post your prescription back to you.
If you wish to deliver your request for a repeat prescription to the surgery there is a mail box in the foyer marked prescriptions which is opened regularly - this will save you time waiting at the reception desk. We have arrangements with some local chemists that will deliver prescriptions to the elderly or housebound - please ask at reception.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
