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.

Prescriptions can be requested without seeing the doctor. However, repeat prescriptions do require reviews with the doctor 6 monthly, 3 monthly or monthly depending on the medication, and the condition which is being treated. Different medications require differing length of review periods. Repeat prescriptions can be requested at reception or by phoning the nurse. Please allow 48 hours for your prescription to be ready. A fee will be incurred with additional fees for faxed scripts or those required urgently.
