If you normally take regular repeat medication please let us know by:
- Giving us a copy of your repeat prescription slip.
- Give us a copy of your medication label on your medication box or bottle which has your name, medication dosage and date.
The prescribing pharmacist will check your medication list and put them on the repeats list but we recommend you make an appointment with the Doctor or Pharmacist to have a medication review within the first month of registering with the surgery. It can take a couple of weeks for your previous records to be delivered to us from your last GP surgery. If you need medication before that, you can bring in your repeat slip and request your medication. Your doctor might need to contact you about your medication request. Please allow up to 2 working days for a prescription request.
All our prescriptions are now sent electronically to a pharmacy.
It means you can go to your nominated pharmacy to pick up your script. Pharmacies “download” scripts from the spine. If you want to go to another pharmacy to get the medication, you need the barcode number, which you give to the new pharmacy and they will download your prescription from the system.
