Repeat Prescriptions:

If you are on regular medication, your Doctor will issue you with a repeat prescription slip. This should be placed in the black box on the wall just inside the Reception entrance, or sent to the Surgery by post or by FAX to 01442 216433, when medication is required.

It is our policy not to accept prescription requests by telephone - this could lead to mistakes and errors in prescribing.

Please allow 3 working days for your new prescription and enclose a stamped addressed envelope if you want it returned by post.

Emergency Prescriptions:

Making special arrangements to provide “emergency prescriptions” on the day requested interrupts a doctor’s scheduled work, which has a detrimental effect on the service we can provide for other patients, and is potentially unsafe.

For these reasons, we will issue emergency prescriptions only when it is clinically necessary to do so. In these cases we will issue sufficient medication for 7 days only.

Emergency prescriptions will be available to collect from the surgery after 6pm.

Emergency prescriptions will not be sent to local pharmacies for collection.

For more information please follow the links below.

Requesting repeat prescriptions online

Requesting repeat medication online saves you a trip to the surgery, or a stamp. Please follow the link in the panel on the left to "On-line services"

Electronic Prescriptions

From November 2014, we will be able to send prescriptions via a secure electronic link to a pharmacy of your choice *. This will be much more convenient for you.

You can read more about the new system by following the link here.

If you have not already done this, please let us know which pharmacy you would like to use by either:

1. Downloading a form here, completing and returning it by e-mail or

2. Collecting a form in the surgery, completing it and returning it to the reception desk.

* You can change your nominated pharmacy whenever you wish.


We have a branch of Rowlands Pharmacy located within our premises. We also work closely with a number of other local Pharmacies, and several collect prescriptions from the Surgery.
