If the doctor agrees you may obtain a repeat prescription for your medication. Please telephone or leave your request at your usual surgery. Your prescription will be ready for collection 72 hours later (3 working days). If you prefer, we can post it back to you (you will need to provide a stamped, addressed envelope).

We offer a dispensing service for those patients who live more than one mile from their nearest chemist. Please ask if you are eligible for this service. We dispense during normal surgery hours. If you are eligible to use the dispensing service we ask that you order your prescription from the surgery you intend to collect the prescription from.

We are keen to ensure that patients with ongoing medical problems are monitored regularly. If the date for your next review with a doctor or nurse has passed you will be asked to make an appointment.

If you need to obtain medicines urgently when the surgery is closed or simply wish to know where your nearest community pharmacy is based then please call NHS 111.
