How Do I...
Obtain A Repeat Prescription?
Patients requiring repeat prescriptions are asked to give at least 48 hours' notice (excluding bank
holidays and weekends) before the prescription is required. Requests for prescriptions
left after 10.00am on Friday may not be ready for collection until after 2.00pm
on Tuesday. For accuracy and efficiency, the prescriptions are prepared by computer.
Requests should be made in writing, preferably on the repeat order form attached
to the previous prescription. If you enclose a stamped, addressed envelope, we
will post your prescription to you, but please allow extra time for the postal
service. Otherwise they can be collected until 6.00pm. Medication for dispensing patients
will be available in 72 hours. We ask you to collect your dispensed medication after 9.00am. (We can only dispense for patients living more than one mile from a chemist.)
do not ask for prescriptions over the telephone. Errors can
occur and your call may block the line in the case of an emergency.
