Monday 25th July - Unfortunately due to high levels of staff sickness, the Practice is short staffed this week and will take longer to answer your telephone calls.  Please bear with us, we are doing all we can to ensure we can respond effectively.

Repeat Prescriptions

greepillsIf you are on long term medication you will be given a computerised repeat prescription.  This will have a list of your drugs attached and you should retain this to use when ordering a repeat prescription. Please tick the items required. 

Please allow two working days for your prescription to be prepared.

Repeat Prescriptions may be requested by:

  1. Following the link on this page to the secure online service
  2. Leaving your request at either surgery
  3. Post, enclosing a stamped addressed envelope if the prescription is to be returned 

We do not accept prescription requests over the phone but in exceptional circumstances it may be possible to waive this. This will need to be authorised by your doctor or the Practice Manager. 

The reasoning behind this decision is to make sure we are reducing the opportunity for human error and prescribing in a safe manner. In addition it also maximises the availability of telephone lines for patients contacting the surgery for urgent problems, appointments or important results. There is always a great pressure on the phone system, no matter how many extra staff or telephone lines we have. We hope you will understand. 

Local pharmacies collect prescriptions from the surgery on a daily basis so please indicate whether you would like your repeat prescription to be sent directly to the chemist of your choice or whether you would like to collect it from Silverdale or the Avenue Surgery.  

An annual review date can be found on the repeat slip. This is simply a reminder for your doctor
