Repeat Prescriptions

red_pills_bottleIf you have been given a repeat prescription, you will find the medication authorised for repeat listed on the tear off slip, attached to your prescription

Please tick those which you require and put the slip in the box, at reception. If required by post please enclose a SAE.

Alternatively you can order online via the link at the top of this page. You will need an online account to do this. Click here for more information about our online services. 

We regret that it is only possible to take telephone requests from the housebound.

A number of local chemists offer a home delivery service but you will need to speak to them directly.

Medication Reviews

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.

Over-the-Counter Medications

Following a review from NHS England, we are no longer able to prescribe over-the-counter medications for minor illnesses and conditions. You may be asked to purchase these yourself at your local pharmacy or supermarket. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Painkillers and medication for fevers in adults and children, such as paracetamol/Calpol and ibuprofen/Nurofen
  • Other cough/cold/sore throat remedies such as cough medicines, decongestants, and throat spray
  • Hayfever medications such as antihistamines, nasal spray, and eye drops
  • Moisturisers/emollients for mild dry skin (e.g. Aveeno, Cetraben)
  • Vitamin D supplements
