If you are on long term medication it will be necessary for you to renew your prescription. Request repeat prescriptions in writing, by fax or in person using the repeat prescription slip with the drugs requested ticked appropriately. You are usually prescribed up to three months supply of drugs and you are requested to see the doctor to discuss whether you should continue with the medication on a yearly basis. This is for your own safety and to avoid you taking any unnecessary drugs.
Please allow 48 hours for repeat prescriptions, excluding weekends and bank holidays.
If one of our doctors has referred you to a private consultant the medication prescribed would normally be supplied by us with NHS prescriptions. However, if you see a doctor privately without your GP’s recommendation any medication prescribed by that doctor will have to be purchased privately.
