Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions can only be requested if a patient has been given a repeat prescriptions form. All other medication is prescribed in consultation with a doctor, for which an appointment must be made.

Telephone requests for repeat prescriptions will not be accepted.

Repeat prescriptions are usually prepared within one working day of the request being submitted, although the surgery requests that 48 hours' notice is given. It is the patient's responsibility to ensure that requests are submitted before their medical supplies run out. We therefore request that this is done a few days beforehand.

Please note, that should there be any query with a repeat prescription, then they may occasionally take longer, and hospital prescription requests take up to seven working days.

For repeat prescriptions that are required before the weekend, we kindly request that patients submit their request form no later than 1.00pm on a Thursday for collection on a Friday evening.

Requests for repeat prescriptions should be placed in the black box on the wall of the surgery as you enter Sherwood House waiting area, and should be collected from reception.

Should you wish the prescription to be posted to you, then please enclose a stamped addressed envelope with your request.

On occasions, the repeat prescription will indicate that your medication needs review with a doctor and will request that you make an appointment with the doctor you usually see. You will need to do this before you request any further prescriptions.

Finally, on some occasions you will be requested to make an appointment to have a blood test – this is done to ensure that your medication is correct, and will need to be done before you request further prescriptions.

Repeat prescriptions can also be requested online for patients registered to use this service. Should you wish to register for the online service please complete a "Patient Access to Online Services" form which is available from reception and you will be given a password.

Please note: from 1st April 2015 patients with online passwords will also be able to view their medications and allergies online.

All new patients who are on Repeat Medication from previous doctors will need to make an appointment with a doctor at this surgery before any medication can be issued. Please bring all medication with you when you attend the appointment.
