How do I request a repeat prescription?
Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients with long-term conditions who receive regular treatment. Your clinician will decide who can have a repeat prescription.
If your repeat prescription request is recevied before 12:00 noon your prescription will normally be ready within three working days.
Unfortunately, we cannot take telephone requests for repeat prescriptions because of the possibility of error.
From time to time we will ask you to see your doctor to review your medication or will require blood tests. We do this to monitor your illness and medication or to ensure it remains safe to prescribe. This may mean that your repeat prescription can take longer than the usual three working days.
You can order your repeat medication in any of the following ways:
Your named GP
It is an NHS requirement that all patients have a named doctor who is administratively responsible for their overall care at the practice. This is one of the partners.
Please contact our reception staff if you would like to know who your usual doctor is.
The fact that you have a named doctor does not prevent you from requesting to see any doctor at the practice; nor does it entitle you to see your named doctor. We will always try to accommodate your request where there are appointments available for the doctor you request.
If you would like to change your named doctor, please let us know and we will try to assist.
How can I improve the practice?
We use the Patient Participation Group to conduct surveys aimed at improving our services. These surveys are conducted two or three times per year.
The results of each survey will be discussed with this group and published on this website. Any actions we propose to take as a consequence of a survey wll also be discussed and published.
