PRESCRIPTIONS

REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

If you need to take regular medication your doctor may give you a REPEAT prescription without the need for you to be seen every time in surgery. 

A repeat prescription is an item of medication that has been approved by a doctor for issue at intervals and can be signed by any Doctor in the Practice.

The doctor will not routinely issue your prescription early. We will usually issue your prescription up to one week before it is due (in the case of monthly supply). We will not issue medication prior to this, unless there are exceptional circumstances, when a doctor will decide if early issue of your medication is appropriate and safe.
