Request a Repeat Prescription
You can request a repeat prescription in the following ways:
- Using our Online Services
- At reception – there is a box on the front desk into which you can place your request.
Please remember that 2 working days’ notice is required for a repeat prescription request to be processed by the Surgery. It may take longer if your prescriptions automatically go to a chemist.
Request an Acute Prescription
Speak to a receptionist; if you use the ‘repeats box’ please give us as much information about the drug you are requesting.
Acute requests may take a little longer to process because they have to be approved by a doctor.
