Alternatively, just tick the medication you require on the re-order slip and then either:-
- Hand the slip in at Reception, or
- Leave it in the designated box in the Waiting Room, or in the external Mail box at the front entrance, or
- Post the slip to the Practice enclosing a stamped addressed envelope,
- Ordering via your pharmacy; or
- Ordering over the internet – via My Health Online.
All prescriptions take at least two full working days before they are ready for collection, and you should re-order at least one week before you run out.
Please allow extra time over weekends or Bank Holidays.
Repeat prescriptions are normally authorised for between three and six months – the re-order slip shows a review date and you may be asked to arrange an appointment with your Doctor before further supplies are ordered.
We cannot take orders for any type of medication over the main Practice telephone number.
You can now choose to collect your medication from any of the pharmacies in town , and some provide a free home delivery service – ask your local pharmacy what they are able to provide.
