If you are on regular medication, your doctor will want to review your medication at least once or twice a year, normally 2 months worth of medication will be prescribed at a time. The right side counterfoil will list the number of times you can order a repeat prescription prior to arranging an appointment for a medication review.
Ordering a Repeat Prescription
Medication can be ordered either by dropping the right sided counterfoil into the repeat medication box on the front desk or posted with self-stamped addressed envelope. We also accept faxes. It is important that the counterfoil be used to ensure accurate prescribing and to avoid any confusion, for this reason we do not accept telephone medication requests except under exceptional circumstances.
Please allow 48 working hours for your prescription to be ready, we recommend checking your medication regularly to ensure sufficient time is left to place an order.
Some local pharmacists offer a free prescription collection service. (e.g. Boots Baker Street & Marylebone High Street), the receptionists will be able to provide you with further information.
If you are going abroad, a one off prescription for 3 months can be given. For longer periods away we would recommend a consultation with a local doctor, or arranging a private prescription from the surgery to cover the additional time away.
