Fógra tábhachtach- Covid19

We are now asking patients who have symptoms of Covid-19 not to attend the surgery. Instead, please telephone us on 046 9021369 and ask to speak with a GP.
You will receive a call back from a clinician who can advise on treatment and testing. Please note that, in accordance with HSPC guidance, we do not provide testing for people without symptoms. Nor do we provide certificates or medical details for work, schools or the creche. There is no charge for test referrals. Please have your PPS number available if you do not have a medical card or a GP visit card.

REPEAT Prescriptions

For your  safety, we do not allow  Medical Receptionists to take orders for prescriptions by phone. The receptionists cannot complete the medication request form on your  behalf.

Please use the available request form (right) or email prescriptions@bedfordmedicalcentre.ie  to order your repeat prescriptions. Two days notice is required.

Please also note that the Irish College of General Practitioners and the Medical Council advise GP’s to regularly review patients using repeat prescriptions.  

Ordinarily, you should see the GP at a minimum of once per year to renew the prescription.  

If the prescribing GP notices that you have not attended, your request may be declined, provided for a shorter period than expected and you may receive a message with your prescription advising that you make an appointment. 

Please do not use the repeat prescribing service to order one-off items. 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.


Due to Covid-19 all prescriptions are being sent directly by secure email to pharmacies. Please always indicate on your request, which pharmacists should receive the prescription. For private patients, please note that the prescription charge remains.

Repeat prescriptions should be requested 48 hours prior to collection. Prescriptions are only available after 14:30 on ther second day after they are requested.

Medication Reviews

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

Know your Medications

Please ask the GP or Nurse to explain the purpose of each of your medicines. We will be happy to supply you with a list of your current repeat drugs and to add or remove items when you consult the GP or Nurse Practitioner.

New Medicines/Urgent Requests

If a doctor elsewhere has prescribed a new medicine for you and you need to have it issued on a medical card prescription, we will facilitate an urgent request if you telephone and give us the original prescription.

Many pharmacists can provide several days emergency supply, while you wait for us to prepare your new prescription

Available Online and at Reception

Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions can be requested in the following ways:

1. Directly by Completing this Form

Please make sure to include patients full name, date of birth, address and for each drug the name, the dose and the number of times per day.
