How to get a Prescription
If you think you may need a prescription medicine, please make an appointment with the doctor. If you have previously been given a prescription for a straightforward condition, such as hay fever, we may be able to issue a prescription after speaking with the doctor on your behalf. Please ask the receptionist. Your local pharmacist should be able to give you advice for non-prescription medication.
We now offer the facility to book appointments and request repeat prescriptions online.
To register for this service please come into the practice with ID containing a photograph and address (e.g. passport or driving licence). We will also require your email address.

How to get a Repeat Prescription
We have a computerised repeat prescription service. Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients with long-term conditions who receive regular treatment. Your doctor will decide who can have a repeat prescription. From time to time we will ask you to see your doctor to review your medication. We do this to monitor your illness and medication. You can ask for a repeat prescription by calling into the surgery when the reception is open, by fax, or through one of the local pharmacies who visit us on a daily basis. Wherever possible please give the exact drug names when ordering. Please allow at least 48 hours before collection. Unfortunately, due to demand and because of the possibility of error, we cannot take telephone requests for repeat prescriptions.
Please note that it is not possible to guarantee receipt of a fax and that there will be nobody to receive or act upon faxes out of hours. You can request a repeat prescription personally in writing at reception. You may also request a Repeat Prescription by post. Please include a stamped, self-addressed envelope so that we may post your prescription on the telephone as this will jam the telephone switchboard and stop urgent calls coming in.
Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
The practice offers the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS), allowing patients to collect repeat prescriptions directly from their chosen pharmacy (except controlled drugs). Please discuss this with your pharmacist if you are interested in setting this up.
