Repeat prescriptions

To request a repeat prescription you need to pass a request into reception or have your regular chemist request it on your behalf. We DO NOT take prescription requests over the phone.

As of March 2015 we now use Electronic Prescription Services. This means that prescriptions will be signed electronically by the doctor and sent automatically to a nominated chemist of your choice. To opt out or change your chemist nomination, please liase with a member of the reception staff.

You can find out more about EPS by clicking here.

Prescriptions require a turnaround of 48 HOURS, apart from in exceptional circumstances. This is demonstrated in the following table.
