Repeat Prescription Request form with Repeat Prescription Request policy.

By post - send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
Where possible please give the exact drug names when ordering along with your full name and date of birth.
We do not take prescription requests over the telephone.

Generic Medicines:
Our practice attempts to use non-brand named (generic) medicines wherever possible as this saves the NHS a considerable amount of money. All hospitals use generic medicines. Most medicines have two names: the brand name which belongs to the company who originally manufactured it, and the generic name, which is the actual name of the medicine. Sometimes, therefore, you may see a drug on your prescription which differs from the name you know it by. Please be assured that the content of the drug is identical to that of the branded version.

Medication Reviews:
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
