To request a prescription you can do so in writing, come into the surgery to complete a request form or through the Patient access app. https://www.patientaccess.com/
Please allow 2 full working days for your prescription to be processed.
Please note we do not accept telephone or email requests for repeat prescriptions, please do not pressure our staff to do so
New patients must be seen by the doctor before they can be issued with a prescription.
Your prescriptions can be picked up from the surgery, sent electronically* or collected by your chosen pharmacy, or posted to you if you provide an SAE, but remember to allow extra time for these services.
If you use a pharmacy collection service, please let us know which one you use, your records will be updated and the chosen pharmacy will be printed on the prescription, and all future prescriptions will be sent there unless you tell us otherwise.
*Ask at your pharmacy if they offer Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS)
The local pharmacies usually collect from us in the morning, therefore you must allow at least an extra day for your medication.
In order that you get the best outcome from your treatment, your GP will need to see you for a medication review.
You must book an appointment with your doctor before your review date; it is very important that you attend these review appointments. This is an opportunity to check on your medical condition and your medicines for unwanted effects.
Important Note - Government Guidelines
We have been advised by the government to reduce the quantity of each drug we prescribe on the repeat prescriptions. It has been suggested to supply just 28 days of treatment for each medication. There are many reasons for this, including the possible wastage of excessive medication supply.
Historically the surgery has always given a three month supply to our patients, and we have chosen to reduce the prescriptions to a two month prescription, as we feel a larger reduction to just 28 days may leave some patients unhappy.
It may be useful to have your email address, but please be assured that we will not give this to a third party.
