How do I request a repeat prescription?
Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients with long-term conditions who receive regular treatment. Your doctor will decide who can have a repeat prescription.
If ordered before 12:00 noon your prescription will normally be ready within two working days. Please remember that we work a half-day on Thursdays and that therefore prescriptions will take a little longer to prepare if ordered on a Wednesday or Thursday.
From time to time we will ask you to see your doctor to review your medication. We do this to monitor your illness and medication.
You can order your repeat medication in any of the following ways:
Wherever possible please give the exact drug names when ordering and please allow at at least two full working days before collection at your pharmacy or at the surgery.
by ticking the items on the right-hand side of your paper prescription and dropping it off at the surgery or at your pharmacy.
by asking your pharmacy to do this for you.
by post (enclosing a stamped and addressed envelope).
by ordering online (you must be registered to use this service,
see this page for information about how to register for online services)
We cannot take telephone requests for repeat prescriptions because of the possibility of error.
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 four partners - Dr Amato, Dr Moorthy, Dr Hill and Dr Hearn
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.
