We do not take repeat medication requests over the phone

For those taking medication on a long-term basis we have a computerised system. Repeat prescriptions authorised by your doctor may be obtained by completing the tear-off slip on the right-hand side of your prescription. Your slip should be delivered to reception by hand or post. A minimum of three (3) working days is needed for processing your request. If you would like your prescription posted to you, please enclose a SAE.

You can also order your repeat medication through the following methods:

Once approved your prescription will be sent electronically to the local chemists. If you wish to nominate one of these chemists, please indicate your preference on the request slip and you will be able to collect your medicines from that chemist after 72 hours. Some local chemists may be able to deliver your prescription if you are housebound.

To avoid dangerous errors we do not accept repeat prescription requests by telephone.

Your medication will need to be reviewed periodically. You will receive a reminder on the tear-off slip.
