HOW TO ORDER REPEAT MEDICATION
IN THE SURGERY
You can order your repeat medication by using the repeat slip issued with your prescription. Tick clearly THE ITEMS THAT YOU REQUIRE and then pop the request slip into the letterbox in the wall at the side of the reception desk. If you have lost your slip please ask the receptionist to help you as we only accept prescription requests in writing.
We require 48 hours notice to process a repeat prescription for a number of reasons. T o give time for checks to be made, your repeat therapy screens updated, reviews to be recorded onto your records, letters sent for reviews, blood tests arranged where necessary and for the GP to sign the prescription. Additionally whilst the prescription clerks are processing the repeats they may be called away to speak to a patient or a chemist or take telephone calls from hospitals regarding patient medication. We can process up to 100 repeat prescriptions a day, many of which have several items.
If you do not give 48 hours notice it creates difficulties for yourself, our staff and the GPs, so please ensure that you don't run out of your medication!!
