It takes 48 hours for preparation of the prescriptions so please allow plenty of time before collection. We only process prescriptions on the same day in an emergency and these are not ready to collect until after 17:30.
All acute prescriptions have to be authorised by the doctor before they are issued. This can take considerably longer than the 48 hours required for repeat prescriptions and the doctor may require you to attend an appointment before authorising it. Before coming to the practice please telephone to check that the prescription has been authorised and signed by the GP as we are unable to phone patients back in these circumstances.
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.
