Almost one third of the patients of our Practice need repeat prescriptions of one sort or another, to order your repeat prescriptions you have the following options.
You can either:
- Visit the practice and hand the repeat slip directly to our reception team, or if reception is busy, post the slip in the box provided at the reception desk.
- Fill in the form on this page and it will automatically be sent to the practice.
- Post the repeat prescription to us highlighting the medication you are requesting.
Please be aware that we can not except prescription requests over the phone.
Your repeat prescription can generally be renewed without necessarily seeing the Doctor
Please give us plenty of notice to ensure that you do not run short of medication before your repeat is made available.
We ask that you allow 48 hours (2 working days) for that prescription to be signed and then a further 48 hours for the medication to come back to the practice, if this is your preferred choice of collection.
There is a voluntary collection of prescriptions from the Surgery to the Fortrose pharmacy twice a day, with a corresponding return of prescribed medication in mid-afternoon. If you prefer, you can leave pre-paid envelopes (free from most pharmacies) at reception and we will post out your prescription to a pharmacy of your choice once it has been signed by the clinician. Please note that this information is not sent electronically to the pharmacy and you need to allow for postage time.
