Repeat Prescriptions

Each GP surgery or primary care practice will have its own procedure for repeat prescribing but the following rules are common to most, if not all. Patients who are well-known to the practice who have a stable condition like asthma, hypertension or diabetes could be allowed to get a repeat prescription for up to six months. Repeat prescriptions are never given to patients who are not known to the practice and there is probably a blanket ban on repeats for narcotics and other drugs that could be misused as doctors are expected to monitor these drugs carefully.

  • May be requested through a nurse or our Patient Portal for regular medications.
  • 24 hours notice will be required for processing your request.
  • A fee will be charged for this service.
  • Your request maybe declined as your doctor wants to consult with you.
