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.

We are able to provide repeat prescriptions for a limited number of ongoing, stable conditions according to our practice policy, however you will need to have an appointment if: 

  • You are currently taking three or more medications
  • Your medication type or dose was changed at your last appointment
  • You have been into hospital since your last prescription
  • You have been under the care of a specialist who has changed your medication since your last review
  • You were not seen for your last prescription
  • You are on an antidepressant

Requests for repeat prescriptions received before 1pm will be available from 2pm the same day. Requests received after 1pm will be available from 9am the following day (or Monday if the request is received on Friday).

An additional fee will apply for prescriptions that need to be processed urgently.
