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.

Please request your repeat prescriptions at least 24 hours before you require them and order them between 12 and 2pm; we will have a script ready for you by the next day.

Repeat prescriptions require time, not just computer and administration time. We monitor patients' health and ensure regular check ups/blood tests when necessary. All scripts are invoiced at the time of writing so PLEASE remember to collect the script as this charge will appear on your account. The charge is usually $15.50 for a repeat script and $25 for methadone or warfarin prescriptions.
