All repeat prescription requests require 48 hours notice. Please refer to the table below to check when your prescription will be ready to collect.
Please check that your prescription does not need to be reviewed by your
doctor before submitting your request.
If you are on regular medication you will need a medication review usually every 6-12 months. This is decided by your GP or ANP. We may need to review your more frequently if you are on a lot of different tablets, have recently changed your medication or if your condition is not stable. Please understand that this is so that we can prescribe safely. There will be a note on the back of your prescription asking you to make an appointment for a medication review and when it is due. If you need a medication review please book in plenty of time if possible but if you are running out of tablets then mention this to the staff at reception and we will make sure that this does not happen.
