For your  safety, we do not allow our medical receptionists to take orders for prescriptions by phone.  Also, our receptionists cannot complete your medication request form on your  behalf.

Please use the online portal button (right/below) to order your repeat prescriptions. Five days (Monday to Friday) notice is required. Prescriptions will be sent to your  chosen pharmacy.

These requests will be declined. You should talk to the GP about such requirements. The repeat prescription service is to facilitate your supply of stable, agreed medications only.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication should ensure medications are accurately recorded by discussing any changes with the doctors during a consultation.
