All requests should include your name, date of birth, contact details and medication required.

Prescriptions are issued on a 28 day basis; any requests received more than 7 days before they are due may not be processed.
Upon receipt of the request, a repeat prescription will then be issued, for any items not on repeat or needing a review a request will be sent to your GP who will take the appropriate action. When signed, your prescription will then be made ready for you or your pharmacy to collect from us at reception, or it can be sent electronically straight to your pharmacy.

If you have attended a consultation at the hospital, or had a hospital admission, we require written confirmation of any changes made before we can update your repeat medication list. Please allow at least 48 hours for processing any changes before asking to collect a prescription. Please note it is your responsibility to inform your pharmacy if your repeat medication list changes in any way.
All medication is subject to review by your doctor and you will be asked periodically to make an appointment with him/her before you can be given another prescription.
