PRESCRIPTIONS

For patients needing regular long-term medication we have a computerised system for repeat prescriptions. All requests for repeat medication need to be placed in writing, using a Repeat Medication Request Slip, at least 48 hours before your medication runs out.

Try to organise your request to once a month. It is important that your treatment is monitored regularly so please look out when your medication is out of authorisation.

Please only order what you require that month and place the request either in the box in the foyer or at the desk.

The completed prescription will be available at reception or at the designated pharmacy you have requested.

If you need to make an appointment for a medications review or you have a query regarding your prescription please ring after 10.00am.

TEST RESULTS

If you have undergone tests, or an X-ray has been requested by the practice, please contact the surgery for the results after 10.00am.

Please allow the time stated by the Nurse or HCA before contacting the practice on (01685) 875906 or (01685) 872006.
