Repeat Prescriptions

If you have a condition that requires ongoing medicines, you may receive a repeat prescription.  This means that you can request further prescriptions without having to see the doctor every time.  You will still be asked to see the doctor periodically to make sure the medicines are appropriate.



How do I  order my prescription?

  • In person - You can call into the Health Centre and order your items with one of the receptionists.  If you have pre-printed repeat prescription slip please make sure you have ticked clearly the items that you need. 


  • By phone - telephone reception Monday to Friday 9.00am to 5.00pm.



When will my prescription be ready?


Any prescription requested before 11.30am Monday to Friday will be ready after 1.00pm on the same day.  Prescriptions ordered after 11.30pm will be ready afer 1.00pm the following day.  When placing an order for repeat medications, please only order those items that you currently need.


For those that request their prescription to be sent to a local pharmacy then the time will be dependent on that pharmacy.  Contact the relevant pharmacy for an indication of the timescale.
