Repeat Prescriptions

Providing prescriptions for repeat medications forms a large part of the work undertaken at the practice. Safety is a priority when prescribing. Regular reviews of repeat medication are carried out and it is sometimes necessary to ask patients to see a doctor or nurse for review.

It takes up to two days to process a repeat prescription request which can be made in the following ways.

If you have any enquiries about a prescription request, please call the Prescriptions Clerk on 01689 861 098 option 4 between 1.30pm and 5pm.
