HOW DO I....
OBTAIN A REPEAT PRESCRIPTION?
Please allow two
working days for your prescription request to be processed.
Requests should be posted through the letter box or sent by post. It is not possible
to take requests for repeat prescriptions on the telephone.
You may collect
your prescription from the Practice. Most of the chemists in the area also offer
a collection service so you can collect your prescription direct from them (please
include the name of the chemist on your request).
Alternatively, if you
supply a stamped addressed envelope we will post your prescription to you.
Obtaining Repeat Prescriptions On-Line
This service allows you to order your repeat
prescriptions over the internet.
Please note that only items specifically listed for repeat on the computer can be obtained in this way. For all other items, even where they have been prescribed in the past, you will need to discuss your request with a doctor.
You will need to register with the Practice before using this service
If you are off work because you are ill, you do not need to see a Doctor immediately. You can ‘self-certify’ your sickness absence for the first seven calendar days using form SC2, which is available from Reception.
If you have seen a Doctor within the last three weeks, you do not need to see a Doctor for a Fit Note. Please write to the Practice saying for how long you need a Fit Note and the starting date of the Fit Note. If you have not seen a Doctor within the last three weeks and require a Fit Note, you will need to make an appointment to see a Doctor.
