Important Information for Patients - Repeat Prescriptions

  • Under the GMS agreement (2004), the surgery has 48 hours (two full working days when submitted during opening hours) in which to prepare a repeat medication request.

    For example, if you request a prescription on Monday, it will not be ready until Wednesday. Bank holidays and weekends are not included in the 48 hours. 

  • It is the patient's responsibility to ensure the request is handed in on time and no earlier than 7 days prior to the due date.
  • All repeat slips must be signed and dated by the patient or their representative.
  • All items requested must be ticked.
  • The number of items requested must be entered where appropriate.
  • If a patient would like to collect a prescription from a pharmacy this must be stated clearly on the request.
  • We process up to 300 prescriptions daily. We would kindly ask that patients not put pressure on our reception or Prescription staff to get a prescription signed immediately.
  • To prevent errors, we do not accept repeat medication requests over the telephone. We must either have the white tear-off part of a patient's last prescription or have the request in writing.
  • Having received medication once does not automatically qualify a patient to receive it again whenever they feel they need or want it. If a medication is not listed on the white part of a prescription it has not been marked as a repeat prescription.
  • To discuss other medication a patient will need to make a routine appointment with a GP. It is solely the doctor's decision to prescribe medication appropriate to the patient.
  • The white part of a prescription also carries important information for you, the patient, including when a medication review is due. Please make a careful note of this information.

We operate a computerised system. Please allow at least 48 hours for your repeat prescription. Please mark the items required clearly on your prescription slip. If this slip is not available please write giving name, address and item required.

There are several means of arranging for a repeat prescription.

1. By post to surgery enclosing a stamped addressed envelope.

2. Deliver by hand into our post boxes situated both outside and inside the practice.

3. Prescription slips can be given directly to participating chemists (ask in surgery for details).

4. By completing the online form - just follow the link for MyHealthOnline above

PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS WILL NOT BE TAKEN BY TELEPHONE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE redcross.jpg

Arrangements can be made for you to collect your prescription directly from a participating chemist of your choice. Some chemists provide a delivery service for any elderly or housebound patients.

From time to time patients on repeat prescriptions are asked to make an appointment to see doctor. This review is necessary so that doctor can check that repeat medication is still appropriate.

REPEAT DISPENSING SERVICE

Repeat Dispensing is beneficial to patients who are taking regular medication for a stable condition. Please ask your GP when having your annual medication review if you are eligible for  this service.

This is ideal if you are stuggling to place your order every 28 days at the surgery.
