Some of our patients are issued repeat prescriptions, which allow them to receive medication for a limited period of time without needing to have an appointment with the doctor.
The repeat prescription system is computerised and re-ordering is a simple matter. Attached to each prescription is a tear-off slip containing a complete list of your particular medication. Keep this and, when you wish to re-order, tick ALL the items you require in the next 28 days. Please bring the slip to the medical centre and allow two working days (48 hours) for the repeat prescription to be prepared. Please enclose a stamped addressed envelope if you wish the prescription to be sent to you. We do not take requests over the phone or via email as mistakes can occur. You can, however, order directly online. See the details below.
We are a pilot site for repeat dispensing (several months' supply of prescriptions being issued at once). Not everyone will be suitable for this service. However, if you require any further information, please ask at the desk.
