Ways of Ordering your Repeat Medication

You can order medications in the following ways:

Your prescription will be ready for collection 5 working days after requesting. If you prefer, we can post it back to you (you will need to provide a stamped, addressed envelope).

Telephone requests are not accepted.

We are keen to ensure that patients with ongoing medical problems are monitored regularly. If you have been advised by the surgery that your medication review is due, please use our Medication Review form. If the date for your next review with a doctor or nurse has passed, you will be asked to make an appointment.

If you run out of medicine by mistake, speak to the dispenser who will, in turn, speak to your doctor. There is no need to make an appointment.

Dispensing

The dispensary is responsible for all requests for repeat medication. The practice must have 5 working days’ notice in order to process all repeat prescription requests. The dispensary is open from 08:00 – 12:30, 14:00 – 17:30 on Monday and 14:00 – 17:00, Tuesday to Friday.

Rural Patients

Dispensing of prescriptions is available for patients who reside in some of the surrounding villages. A list of such villages is available by contacting reception. If you have a disability, or find it very difficult to get to a chemist for health-related reasons, please let us know as you can apply to be a dispensing patient.
