Requests for repeat prescriptions can be made in the following ways:
- In Person
- Via Pharmacy
- Fax/Post It
For reasons of safety receptionists cannot accept requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.
Please allow 3 working days for processing electronic prescriptions (EPS) and up to 4 working days for paper & private prescription requests.
Our preferred method of processing your prescriptions is EPS; however we can cater for the above as secondary preference.
If your medication is due for review please make an appointment to see a doctor or nurse before your next prescription. If you run out of your usual medication the pharmacist can supply one week’s emergency drugs. For reasons of safety receptionists cannot accept requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.
Important Notice for Patients Using Pregabalin or Gabapentin
From 1st April 2019, amendments to the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001 and the Safe Custody Regulations 1973 come into force which mean that pregabalin and gabapentin will be reclassified as Schedule 3 Controlled Drugs.
The reclassification follows Government consultation and recommendations from the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs for additional safeguards to be put in place because of concerns around the misuse of these drugs.
