Patients receiving repeat medication on a long-term basis will have a list of this medication printed on the right hand side of their prescription. This list can then be handed in, or posted to the surgery when a further prescription is required. If a stamped addressed envelope is included, we will return your prescription by post.
If the medication is not listed on the right hand side of your prescription then either a handwritten request or an on-line request is required.
Prescriptions can be collected 2 working days after you have made your request unless you have asked a pharmacy to collect it on your behalf (see above)
