What is a repeat prescription?

medication4If you are taking medication regularly, long-term, then the clinician may decide that you do not need to see them each time you need a new supply of medicines.

The clinician will add the medicine you need regularly to your records as a “repeat drug”, which you can order when your medicine is running low. 

If you have medicines on repeat you will be issued with a “repeat request slip” attached to your prescription.  If you cannot see your medication listed on the repeat list, that is because it is not on your record as a 'repeat drug'.

Using the repeat request slip

  • Tick the box(es) next to the prescription item you will require within the next ten days
  • If you do not have a spare repeat slip, a request form can be obtained and filled in at reception.  Alternatively, we would accept any written request, so long as it contains all the details about your medication - name, strength, dosage.
  • If you are ordering dressings, catheters or ostomy bags then it is useful to the receptionist if you give the code/reference number on the form.
  • Your repeat request slip cannot be used to order any new items, you will have to make an appointment to see the doctor or nurse.
  • Before you ask for a repeat prescription, please STOP and THINK, are you still using ALL the medication on your repeat prescription? If not, then please inform the surgery.

How to Order Prescriptions Leaflet

Requests must be in writing and may be submitted online, in person, by post or by fax. 

We DO NOT take requests for prescriptions over the telephone, as mistakes are too easily made.  Please allow two full working days between request and collection.  We are happy to post prescriptions if a SAE is provided. 

Many pharmacies offer a medicines collection and delivery service. Ask your pharmacist for more information.  If you wish the prescription to be sent directly to the pharmacy then please indicate the appropriate pharmacy on the request form.  In May 2014 we introduced Electronic Prescription Service (EPS).  EPS means we can send your prescription electronically to the chemist of your choice. Please contact the practice to let us know your preferred chemist.  EPS saves money, time and the environment.

After receiving items on repeat prescription for a length of time, the doctor may request that you make an appointment to attend the surgery for a medication review with either a doctor or a nurse. 

We require two full working days for the safe preparation of your prescription, provided your request reaches us before 4pm.
