Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions may be ordered online (see below) or by written request for collection later.  We do not accept prescription requests over the telephone.

Please allow 48 hours (two working days) notice. If you need your prescription before the weekend, we need the request by Wednesday. Requests left during the weekend will normally be ready on Tuesday, after 3.00pm. Please do not make your request by telephone and do not wait until you have run out of your medication before ordering more.

Patients may post their requests to us, together with a stamped addressed envelope for return delivery. Requests can also be faxed to the practice confidential safe haven fax number 01702 603281. Periodically your doctor may ask you to attend in person to check your condition and medication. Please do not ask the doctor for a repeat prescription for another member of your family during your appointment.
