It is sometimes possible to obtain a repeat of a medicine previously prescribed without seeing the doctor. If this is the case then you will have received a repeat prescription request form at the time your original prescription was issued. As far as possible you should tick the items required and submit this form to the practice. If this is not possible then you may submit your request in writing.
Repeat prescriptions are issued at the doctor’s discretion and are usually for patients on long-term treatment. Requests can be made by fax, by post (enclosing a stamped addressed envelope), or in person. They can also be made via email to firstname.lastname@example.org (Please note that this email is strictly for ‘repeat prescriptions’ only.)
All repeat prescription requests should have your name, date of birth, address and the medications you require on them. The request can be posted, faxed, emailed or delivered in person to the practice. Requests will not be accepted by telephone.
There is also the option to order your repeat prescriptions online, alongside booking and cancelling your appointments. This is done via the link at the top of this page. Please ask at reception for more details and to gain access as you will need to be have your own personal PIN number generated before you can access the site.
We are unable to answer any questions included in a request. Please contact reception if you do need help or advice.
