Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions 

All repeat prescriptions are carefully monitored at the surgery. Your review date will be shown on the tear off slip attached to your prescription, if you need to be seen you will be contacted by the surgery.

The prescription will be available for collection after 2pm the next working day.  Please remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account when ordering medication.

Repeat Dispensing

The practice has now introduced repeat dispensing for patients who wish to participate in the scheme and who fit the medical criteria.  If you are on four or less medications the GP may be able to authorise a set number of prescriptions that a patient can collect on a monthly basis direct from a pharmacy of their choice.  This will alleviate the need for the patient to order and pick up their prescription from the surgery each month.  Full details will be discussed and agreed with the patient prior to their enrolment on the scheme.

EPS - Electronic Prescription Service

Wherever possible we will use the EPS service to send prescriptions directly to the pharmacy of your choice. Certain items, such as controlled drugs, are not yet eligible for EPS and so will be printed. 

Your local pharmacy will be asking you if you would like your repeat prescriptions to go directly to them.  You can either organise the facility through them or through the surgery.  If you select a specific pharmacy you would not need to phone them each time you order a prescription as it would automatically go to them.   

You can change your nominated pharmacy at any time.
