Repeat prescriptions are available at 48hours notice. To avoid confusion, please tick the boxes on your B side (white side) of your prescription or ask a receptionist to print one out for you.
Reception staff are not permitted to accept prescription requests over the phone - to avoid misunderstandings. we require a written request with your personal details on it. You may request prescriptions by post, or if you have access to a fax machine you may fax your request. If you wish we will post a prescription to you - provided you supply us with a stamped addressed envelope.
Doctors may issue a prescription for you to collect after a telephone consultation.
You may request your regular pharmacist to collect your routine prescription - please speak to the pharmacist about this, or ask our reception staff to forward your prescription to the pharmacy of your choice.
Our practice nurse/nurse practitioner can also issue prescriptions for common ailments.
Your local pharmacist should be able to give you advice for non-prescription medication.
