Repeat medication is normally issued in sufficient quantity for 28 days. Prescriptions can be repeated for as long as they are authorised by the clinician. To request a repeat prescription you can:
- Request the required items through the Online Patient Access system (SystmOnline).
- By phoning the Medicines Order Line on 01246 588860 between the hours of 9.30am-4.30pm Monday-Friday.
- By handing in your request over the counter to the reception team no more than 5 days before your medication is due.
A minimum of 1 week's notice is required between requesting and collecting all prescriptions so that it can be prepared and signed by the doctor.
If you enclose a stamped addressed envelope we will be happy to post it back to you. Local chemists also provide a collection and delivery service.
