Due to the increasing number of repeat prescriptions we now have to operate a strict 48 hour turnaround for any repeat prescription requests.
Please note that 48 hours is 48 “office opening hours” and does not include bank holidays or weekends.
Prescription ordered on:
Monday am can be collected Wednesday am
Tuesday am can be collected Thursday am
Wednesday am can be collected Friday am
Thursday am can be collected Monday am
Friday am can be collected Tuesday am
Any prescriptions order over the weekend will not be ordered until Monday am this mean they will NOT be ready for collection until Wednesday am!
During less busy periods prescriptions may be ready before the 48 hours but please do not be offended should they take the full 48 hours
Also, please do not try and order your meds too early as this too is not possible. Any requests for medication too early will be disregarded unless authorised by the GP.
The ordering of your medication on time is your responsibility.
With Patient Access, depending on the services enabled at your GP Surgery, you can:
- Book new appointments.
- Order repeat prescriptions.
- Change your address details.
