Please note that we ask for 48 hours notice from the time we receive the request in surgery before it is ready for collection. This does not include Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays. If you wish to have your prescription collected by the pharmacist you should allow an extra 24 hours for this i.e. 72 hours in total from the time your request is received in surgery.

Every so often you will be asked to make an appointment to see the doctor in order that the drugs prescribed can be checked and the repeat prescription slip amended if necessary.

Some of the local pharmacies offer a collection and delivery service for the housebound and immobile. We cannot arrange this for you - you need to contact the pharmacist of your choice and complete the form they provide.

You should be aware of your medication running out and leave plenty of time to obtain a repeat prescription - it can be dangerous if you stop taking medication abruptly.
