Repeat Prescribing Policy

The surgery needs three working days to process your repeat prescription. This is because all repeat prescriptions are reviewed and indeed printed off by the doctor to reduce the risk of errors.

We do NOT take requests for repeat prescriptions on the telephone. This is because many errors have happened when repeat prescription requests have been taken over the phone, and patient safety is paramount.

We issue 2 months worth of drugs at each prescription for most long term medications.

We aim to try and synchronise prescriptions, so that you get the whole supply every 2 months, rather than requesting different drugs every other week.

When we review the medication, we do take the opportunity to review your medical problems. Thus every so often,  you may be requested to visit the doctor or nurse for a review appointment, or to have a blood test.

If you request a new drug or a change in dosage of your medication, you will probably be asked to come and see the doctor for a medication review.

Pre-payment Certificate

If you have to pay for your prescriptions and get more than 5 items in 4 months, or 14 in 12 months, you could save money by buying a pre-payment certificate.

Ring 0845 850 0030 to buy one over the phone using your credit/debit card.

Alternatively you can go to the Department of Health website for a form to apply by post.
