Repeat Prescriptions

Please allow 48-hours between requesting and collecting all repeat prescriptions.

Please Note: The surgery do not accept medication requests over the phone.

All medication will be re-viewed by the doctor and you may be brought  (requested to book  routine appointment or telephone appointment  for  medication review.)

How to order Repeat Precriptions

Due to the recent closure of the POD Service, many have wondered how can we get our repeat prescriptions ordered?

As such, there are multiple ways available:

  • Use the NHS App – No more would you need to call the surgery, wait in a queue to request for your medication. Just simply tap the items you need and your request will be sent straight to the GP to be issued to your pharmacy. If you would like more information on how to get started or want to learn more about the App, why not join us in our NHS App Roadshows.
  • In Person – If using the app is causing some difficulties and would prefer to request your medication within the surgery, you are still free to do so as usual.
  • Via Telephone – If the above are inaccessible, you are able to call the surgery to request your prescriptions. Be wary we will not be accepting prescription requests over the phone during our peak time of before 10am.

Travelling Abroad

“By law, the NHS ceases to have responsibility for the medical care of patients when they leave the UK.  In addition, GPs are not required by their terms of service to provide prescriptions for the treatment of a condition that is not present and may arise while the patient is abroad.”

We will provide sufficient medication for an existing condition for the period a patient is away.

Medication that needs monitoring will, however, may not be prescribed, due to safety concerns

Over the counter medication will only be prescribed for a month only.

We will only provide sufficient medication to last 3 months, up until patients are able to make alternative arrangements at their destination

Patients that take a minimum of 3 months leave will be removed from our patients lists. we will be pleased to re-register patients on their return. Patients can be reassured that their electronic notes are kept on fie for reference on their return

“Patients and relatives should not seek medication for themselves while they are abroad as this constitutes NHS fraud.”

Prescriptions for medicines in case of illness while abroad:

  • GPs will only prescribe NHS prescriptions in this case for exacerbations of pre-existing illnesses, E.g., antibiotics for patients who have frequent infections secondary to an underlying lung condition.
  • GPs may provide private prescriptions if it is clinically appropriate, and they can be self-administered safely without medical assessment while abroad. These prescriptions are not free.
  • Patients should be aware that some drugs commonly prescribed in the UK may be illegal in certain countries and you should check with that countries embassy before you travel.
