We can only accept written requests for repeat prescriptions. We cannot accept verbal or telephone requests.
This policy is in place to:
- Ensure maximum patient safety
- Ensure that patients are aware of the medications they are requesting
- Reduce the risk of prescribing of unnecessary medications
- Ensure accurate records of patient medication requests are kept
- Minimise human error
Repeat prescriptions are only issued within 5 days of being due and therefore we ask that you only order your prescription within 7 days of being due. We aim to have all prescription requests reviewed and delivered to your pharmacy within 5 working days. Please do not attend the surgery to collect your prescription.
