Repeat Prescription Collection
You can specify ONE chemist to collect your repeat prescriptions from the surgery. Once you sign up to this service you are no longer able to collect your own prescription from the surgery (excluding acute items after discussion with a GP).
If you wish to use this service, please ask reception for a consent form or complete and return the consent form below to the surgery.
Please allow 2 working days after ordering your repeat prescription, as there is not always a doctor available to sign non-urgent prescriptions.
If you change your mind or wish to change the chemist you use at a later date, then you must let us know.
The Practice adheres to Health & Social Care Board prescribing guidance in relation to faxing prescriptions which confirms it is only in exceptional circumstances that faxing a prescription is permissible.
