How to get a prescription

If you think you may need a prescription medicine, please make an appointment to see a doctor. Our practice nurses can also issue prescriptions for common ailments such as hay fever, conjunctivitis and antibiotics for urine infections. If you have previously been given a prescription for a straightforward condition, such as hay fever, we may be able to issue a prescription after a telephone consultation. Our local pharmacist can also give you advice for non-prescription medication.

Repeat prescriptions

If you are on a repeat medication your doctor will enter onto the computer a date when the prescription medications are next due to be reviewed. This allows you to continue to obtain your medication without the need to see a doctor until your review date. Depending on the nature of the medication you may receive a letter asking you to have a check-up such as a blood test or blood pressure check. Having these checks done promptly enables us to prescribe your medicines effectively and safely.

In person: To order a repeat medication please tick the item(s) you require on your repeat request slip (the white part of your prescription) and place the slip in the box by the dispensary hatch.

Fax: 01264 350138.

Email: Via Patient Access. Please ask for a PIN to use this service.

Telephone: For safety reasons we are unable to accept requests for repeat prescriptions by telephone.

Please allow 2 working days for repeat medication requests.
