Repeat Prescriptions

We run a repeat prescribing system to save time for patients, doctors and staff.  Any long term or frequently needed medication is usually on a "repeat" prescription. The repeat request slip is attached to the back of your prescription.

Please note:

It is usual to give no more than 28 days treatment at a time. 
The slip may have several items on it. 

Each item states the medication, the strength and the quantity. 
Please order all regular medication at the same time each month
Tick one or more items on your repeat slip.

Requesting your Medication Online

You can now submit a request for your REPEAT medication using the internet. This service, which is available through Patient Access, allows you to view all the items in your repeat medication list and select the ones you wish to request.

For details on how to register for repeat prescribing online, please ask at reception for a Registration Letter.
