Ordering your Repeat Prescriptions

If you are on long-term medication your doctor will give you your first prescription and it will have two parts:

  • The GREEN SIDE is the actual prescription, which you give to the chemist.
  • The WHITE SIDE will contain a list of medication that can be issued as a repeat.

This allows you to re-order repeat medication without seeing the doctor every time, though you will be requested to attend regular medication reviews with in house pharmacist to ensure that all is well with your medication. You maybe invited for this via our new text messaging service. 

When you need more medication, please mark ONLY those items that you need, by ticking next to each item on the white side. Please do not tick items that you do not need. You should then take or send your white slip to the surgery.

You can also order repeat prescriptions:

  • sending in an SAE,
  • coming into the surgery, 
  • through your local pharmacy 
  • registering on our website to order repeat prescriptions
  • online via the link at the top of this page
  • WE DONT TAKE REQUESTS OVER THE PHONE

Please allow 48 working hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, before collection. Make sure that you order your repeat prescription in good time, so that you do not run out and please do not stock pile medication.

For those who find it difficult to get to the surgery we are happy to work with the local pharmacists who operate a collection and delivery service.

Acute Medication

This is medication that has worked for you in the past for an acute problem, but that you don’t usually use all the time. Should you wish to request this kind of medication, you will need to come into the surgery to complete a re-ordering form or alternatively you can request it by completing the relevant section of our online ordering service.

  • Please be aware that any request for acute medication will have to be authorised by a GP prior to issue and you may be asked to discuss this request with the GP before issuing. Please try to give us as much information as possible when requesting to minimise any delay.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see/speak to a doctor or our in-house pharmacist 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.
