Prescriptions for medications ta ken regularly can be obtained without seeing the doctor, these are called repeat medications. Requests must be in writing, i.e. completion of the repeat slip on the back of the prescription, a letter to the doctor, or completion of a form at reception.

We do not take prescription requests over the telephone.

Please note if there is an alteration on your repeat slip, or you are requesting additional medication not listed on the repeat slip, your prescription will take longer to process.
