Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in the following ways:

The practice has adopted the policy of generic prescribing. In some cases the medicine you receive on prescription will remain as before, but it is possible that there will be a change or alteration in the size and shape of the tablets/capsules. The doctors would like to reassure all patients that the generic substitution has the same biological properties, efficacy, safety and quality as branded medicines. If there are any difficulties with your prescription, please let us know.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
