Changes to Dispensing Service
From 1st September 2019 repeat dispensed medication will be available for collection 72 working hours (3 working days) from the time your request is submitted to the surgery.
This is due to an increasing amount of medication being out of stock at our suppliers.
If we do not dispense your medication your repeat prescription will continue to be available after 48 working hours (2 working days) from the time you submit it to the surgery.
Please note that weekends and bank holidays will not be counted, only working days so please allow enough time when handing in your prescription.
Repeat prescriptions will be issued at the doctor’s discretion and are normally for patients who are on long-term treatment. Requests for prescriptions can be made by returning your repeat prescription slip to the Surgery, in writing, online via the link below, or via the online form click here. We are unable to take orders for repeat prescriptions at weekends, public holidays or out of normal surgery hours. Your paper repeat prescription will be ready for collection 48 working hours after it has been submitted to the surgery. Your repeat medication will be available for collection 72 working hours after your request has been submitted to the surgery. Please make allowances for weekends and public holidays.
If someone collects your prescription for you they will need to know your full name, address and date of birth otherwise we are unable to give them your medication. This is in the interest of patient safety.
