Patients on regular medication do not always need to see a doctor to obtain a repeat prescription. You will be issued with a slip attached to your prescription which should be returned to the surgery, after completion, when you require further medication. It is practice policy to provide a 28-day supply of long term medication and review this every six months though individual cases may vary. Medication is often expensive so do please request only those items which you truly require. Remember to allow two working days before collecting your prescription.
For all repeat prescriptions telephone:
The Healthcare Centre: 01772 655533
Longsands Medical Centre: 01772 511414
Sharoe Green Surgery: 01772 716410
Repeat prescriptions can also be ordered online via Patient Access. You can register for this service by contacting reception.
Patients who are on limited number of repeat prescription items which never or rarely change can apply to join the Repeat Dispensing Scheme. This enables patients to receive prescriptions of up to six months' supply of their medication at one request. If this applies to you, please ask when ordering your prescription. Please telephone the surgery to order your prescription after 10.00am and allow two working days before collection.
