The majority of our patients elect to collect repeat prescription from a local pharmacy including pharmacies within supermarkets. In addition, delivery of repeat medication to housebound patients can be arranged with many pharmacies- please check with your local pharmacy for more information.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a GP, Clinical Pharmacist or Practice Nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification of when this is due will appear on your repeat prescription slip.

Please contact us to book an appropriate appointment.

Do not book a routine appointment to order your regular medications as GPs do not have the available appointments to do this. Please only use the Online Services or prescription ordering phone line.
