How to get a repeat prescription
Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients with long-term conditions
who receive regular treatment. Your doctor will decide who can have
a repeat prescription.
From time to time we will ask you to see your doctor to review
your medication. We do this to monitor your illness and medication.
You can ask for a repeat prescription by phoning or by calling
into the health centre when we are open. Wherever possible please
give the exact drug names when ordering.
Please note there will be a charge for these prescriptions, and
an extra charge if you require us to fax the script to a pharmacy
or post to you.
Faxing prescriptions to your pharmacy
We can fax your script to the pharmacy of your choice. Please ensure
you let us know which pharmacy. Please note that most pharmacies
will charge you to receive your script this way.
To order a prescription
You can either phone or email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please ensure you have at least 2 week’s supply of your regular medications in-case of emergency.
For regular medication repeats please ensure your request is in by 12pm. It will be ready after 4pm the following working day. If you require an urgent/same day prescription, please phone reception with your request by 12pm and it will be ready for collection after 3pm that same day.
