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 happy to do phone scripts for medicines that patients are stable on. There is also the ability to request repeat prescriptions through our patient portal.

We prefer to see all patients on regular medication within a 6 month time frame. We will not prescribe this way if more than a year has elapsed since a consultation has taken place.

  • Allow 24 hours for checking and issuing
  • There is an extra charge for an urgent script and to have the script faxed to a pharmacy
  • Please ensure all scripts are paid for when either ordered or collected, to avoid a charge at the end of the month
  • Repeat scripts cost $25
