How to get a prescription

If you think you may need a prescription medicine, please make an appointment with the doctor.

Your local pharmacist should be able to give you advice for non-prescription medication.

How to get a repeat prescription

Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients with long-term conditions who receive regular treatment. Your doctor will decide who can have a repeat prescription.

From time to time we will ask you to see your doctor to review your medication. We do this to monitor your illness and medication.

You can ask for a repeat prescription by phoning or by calling into the health centre when we are open. Wherever possible please give the exact drug names when ordering.

Please note there will be a charge for these prescriptions, and an extra charge if you require us to fax the script to a pharmacy or post to you.
