Repeat prescriptions can be requested from the reception desk, by post with a stamped addressed envelope or email:
Ideally we would like you to use the tear-off portion of your repeat prescription, but if this is not available or it is for a drug that is not on the prescription, then you will need to put it in writing, making sure that we have the correct name, strength and dosage. Alternatively you can complete our online prescription request.
As doctors we try to prescribe as much medicine as is necessary but no more. Repeat prescribing is a convenient way of issuing medicine to patients without them needing to see a doctor each time just for a prescription.
It is important to keep prescribing under review. Patients can help us in this by telling us about the medicine they are taking and any side effects they are suffering. If you as a patient feel that you are taking a medicine which is not helping your condition please tell us at your next appointment so we can alter it. Also if you do not know, or cannot remember, why the doctor has prescribed a certain drug please ask us to explain why at your next appointment. If you have stopped taking a drug please let us know.
