Please allow 3 working days notice for repeat prescriptions to be printed and signed. For example, if you drop a routine repeat prescription request in before 4pm on Monday, it should be ready by Thursday afternoon.
Please do not attend the surgery to pick up the prescription sooner than 3 days. The reception staff cannot leave the front desk to interrupt a doctors session. Most of our prescriptions are signed during lunch time, therefore please make sure you have left at least 'three lunch times' before coming to collect it.
The 3 days target is only for routine prescriptions from your routine list. If you are requesting a medication not on your repeat list it may take longer (see below).
You can arrange with your local pharmacist to drop the prescription request off with them and they will pick up the new one from us. Please allow atleast 4 days for this.
Our reception staff are not permitted to accept telephone requests for prescriptions because of the risk of error.
If you require the prescriptions to be returned to you by post please enclose a stamped addressed envelope.
If somebody else is collecting your script on your behalf then please supply them with a written note of authority.
