Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients who receive regular treatment.
Your doctor will decide who can have a repeat prescription. From time to time we will ask you to see your doctor to review your medication. We do this to monitor your illness and medication.
You can ask for a repeat prescription:
- Online with Patient Access - CLICK HERE
- By calling into the surgery and leaving request in prescription box in reception
- By telephone please request your prescription by telephoning the surgery on 0117 944 9700 between 10am - 12.15pm
- By post enclosing a stamped address envelope for your script to be posted to you.
Wherever possible please give the exact drug name, your name and address and date of birth when ordering.
Your prescription will be available for you to pick up after 3 working days.
You can also ask for it to be collected from a local pharmacy. Our local pharmacists can also arrange to deliver your tablets to your home.
Some local chemists have a collection and delivery service.
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 three full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
Changes to Urgent Prescriptions
As from 1st May, all URGENT prescriptions will need to be requested in writing at reception, by completing an urgent prescription request form. This must be completed by 1pm for collection after 6pm that day. Any urgent requests received after 1pm will not be processed until after 6pm the following day.
