REPEAT PRESCRITION PROCEDURE
Repeat prescriptions may be generated by any staff members and authorised by Doctors and or their locum doctor.
Patients receiving repeat prescriptions will be reviewed every 3-6 months [depending on the drug prescribed], or after one repeat of prescriptions has been generated. This time period will be clearly stated in the patient’s notes.
- Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
- By Hand: drop your repeat slip in at reception with the required items clearly marked.
- By Post: send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
- By Phone: 07 8287056
- By Fax: 07 8288722
- Online: Using Manage My health website/app
Requests are not accepted from partners, family members or friends, unless under special circumstances, with a prior arrangement /signed authority.
If a patient is overdue for a review and requests a repeat prescription, the following action will be taken: the patient will be asked to make an appointment before a new prescription will be signed, or the patient will be issued with a repeat prescription for a month only.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications depending on medical conditions.
Please allow at least one full working day between requesting and collecting your medication taking into account weekends and bank holidays.
You can arrange for the script to be faxed/send to a pharmacy of your choice or to collect your prescriptions from the surgery.
