Some local pharmacies also offer a prescription collection service from this practice (and will accept telephone requests if you are registered with their collection service). Details are available from reception.
Please note, we do not accept requests over the telephone.
Requests for repeat prescriptions are not accepted at weekends or public holidays and prescriptions are not available for collection at these times.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

A serial prescription is a 24 or 56 week prescription for medicine(s) you need to treat a long-term condition. There is no need to request a repeat prescription form from your doctor during this time. Instead you only need to visit your registered pharmacy for your repeat medication while the serial prescription is still valid. Serial prescription(s) are kept in the pharmacy and your GP decides how often they should be collected, e.g. every four or eight weeks. Let your pharmacist know if you will need to collect your prescribed medicines earlier than normal or if you will need more than usual if, for example, you are going on holiday. Each time a prescription is collected the pharmacist notifies the doctor.
Serial prescriptions are only suitable for patients that are stable on their repeat medication and who will not have it regularly adjusted.
