What is a Repeat Prescription?
A repeat prescription is a continuous supply of certain medication that you can routinely order for a set period of time without having to see a doctor.
We review any regular medication on a repeat prescription annually and wherever possible the doctor will do this without you having to attend the surgery.
If you have been advised by the surgery that your medication review is due please contact the practice by phone or submit an eConsult.
View the cost of prescriptions on the NHS website.
You can also find out if you are entitled to free prescriptions.
If you have visited a hospital and need medicine urgently, you may be given a prescription to take to the hospital pharmacy for this medication to be dispensed.
If the medicine is not needed urgently, please send us a copy of this so we can issue this medication for you.
Additionally, in some situations, your GP will need to ensure they have received all relevant information from the hospital to enable them to prescribe the new medicine for you. Only when this information is received from the hospital, can the prescription be issued.
If you have been prescribed a specialist medication, it may take some time for your pharmacy to obtain this. It is recommended that you present this prescription to the hospital pharmacy if you can.
