Prescriptions

We process hundreds of prescriptions each day, and it is important that we operate a robust process that avoids the potential for error. Each prescription is a legal document, and therefore each prescription needs to be accurate, and checked by a GP before it is signed. For these reasons, it takes two working days from the date of your initial request for us to issue your repeat prescription.

 

The doctor will need to review you and your medication at regular intervals. You may be asked to make an appointment before a further prescription can be issued

 

you can now order repeat prescriptions online. First time users need to complete a simple registration.
