When you are stabilised on a medication you may request a repeat prescription without the need to see your GP. There is a charge for this service. Most patients having repeat prescriptions will still need to be seen at least six-monthly. All patients should be seen on an annual basis.
For safety reasons repeat prescriptions should be done by your own GP. Please do not present to the Urgent Care Drop In service for repeat prescriptions. Prescriptions are valid for three months so you are advised to request your repeat prescription at least a couple of weeks in advance of running out. Prescription requests will take 48 hours to process. Requests placed after 4pm on Friday will not be ready until the following Tuesday.
If your doctor is away the prescription may be done by another doctor. If that doctor is not happy to provide the prescription you may be given a shorter supply. To avoid this, please order repeats well before you run out.
We will contact you only if we need to discuss your request, otherwise assume your repeat prescription will be processed. Please allow 48 hours for the request to be processed.
Please note: The repeat prescription service is only available 8am to 4pm, Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays.
