Prescriptions can be ordered by telephone for:
Nursing /Residential Homes/EMI
Prescriptions may be ordered over the telephone Monday to Friday between 1.00pm and 3.00pm.
From the time of request the collection of the signed prescription will be 2 working days, i.e an order placed on Monday will be ready for collection on Wednesday afternoon.
This information is printed on the repeat side of all prescriptions.
The repeat side of the prescription needs to be ticked to indicate items required and then posted to the Practice.
Once the request has been received the prescription will be ready for collection within 2 working days.
By Hand / Over Desk:
Drop the repeat side of the prescription (items require to be ticked) in the prescription letter box or the Surgery letter box. Requests may be taken over the reception desk by a member of staff by simply printing the B side of the repeat medication and asking the patient (if able) to tick the items.
Again the prescription will be ready for collection within 2 working days.
Please use the link at the bottom of the page to order a repeat prescription online.
If you do not have login details please speak to reception.
