General information about ordering repeat prescriptions.

Please allow 2-5 whole working days before collection. The 2 working days starts when we or POD receive your instruction during a normal working day and does not start when you instruct a local pharmacy or order the prescription online or put a prescription counterfoil through our letterbox if we are closed.

  • Please request your repeat prescription in good time, as sometimes delays cannot be helped
  • Please do not order medications too early, usually we ask for requests to be requested no earlier than 14 days before they are due, if you need to order early due to a holiday please let us know the reason for your early request
  • Please be aware that we have the right to refuse to issue a prescription if we do not think its safe to issue the prescription and we may ask you to speak to a doctor or nurse about your request. This may be due to you being overdue for a medication review or for ordering too much of a particular drug which may concern us.

Medication reviews

You will be asked to see a nurse or a doctor at regular intervals for a check-up usually around your birthday month, so sometimes we will remind you that your review is overdue. If its your birthday month or you get a reminder note from us please come in for your medication review as soon as possible, this may include annual blood tests. We may refuse to issue medications if your review is very overdue. For information about medication reviews please see the link below:
