Ordering a repeat prescription

 

Repeat Prescriptions

If you require prescriptions for regular and continuing treatment, it is not always necessary to see the doctor each time. Repeat prescriptions are computerised so please use the tear-off slip at the side when ordering. This slip will also indicate the date your medication review is due.

Please allow two full working days for prescription requests to be completed. We DO NOT accept requests by telephone.
