You can order your repeat medicines using the tick box list that comes with your prescription. Please only order the items that you need. Medicines cannot be ordered more than two weeks early. Early orders will be refused. Order forms can be posted to the surgery or handed in at reception or requests can be made online via emis Patient Access.
We do not take orders over the phone unless the patient is housebound. If you would like your prescription posted to you, please include a stamped addressed envelope with your order.
Your prescription takes 48 hours to process. Same day requests cannot always be met. It is your responsibility to order medication in time.
Some chemists have a repeat prescription ordering service. If you are interested, please talk to your local chemist.
When you are discharged from hospital you should normally receive five days supply of medication.
On receipt of your medication requirements, which will be issued to you by the hospital, please bring this to the surgery or post via S.A.E. before your supply of medication has run out.
Hospital requests for change of medication will be checked by the GP first, and if necessary your Doctor will issue you with a Prescription. The Practice will endeavour to issue you with your prescription on that day, but it cannot be issued until your medical details are checked by the Doctor, your prescription should normally be ready by 4pm on that day, or you may be advised to attend the next day.
The Doctors will review your medication, regularly, which may involve changes to your tablets, in accordance with current health Board policies. Please be reassured that this will not affect your treatment.
