Please note we have 48 hours to arrange any repeat prescriptions. If your order is urgent please ask you nominated pharmacy to mark urgent on your request. We cannot guarantee that the request will be actioned as urgent. We will do our best to meet the requirements.
We do not take repeat prescription requests over the phone. Order any repeat medications with your nominated Pharmacy otherwise you can complete the B part to your repeat prescription and post in the prescription box located at the front gate of the surgery. Our Reception team check this secure black box throughout the day.
Any medications that are a one off issue or “Acute Items” you will need a telephone consultation with the GP to discuss the use of these items. These will NOT be ordered with your repeats.
If you are due a medication review, please contact the reception team. They will review and arrange a suitable appointment with our in-house pharmacist.
You can use Patient Access for prescription requests, appointment booking, and information on your personal medical record. If you would like to use this access facility ask at reception for a registration form. Once you have an account you can sign in at: www.patientaccess.com
