Prescriptions

The majority of prescriptions are now completed electronically using the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) where the prescription will be electronically transmitted to a pharmacy of your choice.

We have a computerised repeat prescription service. Repeat prescriptions are normally for pateints with longterm conditions who recieve regular treatment. Your doctor will decide who can have a repeat prescription. From time to time we will invite you to see your Doctor to review your medication. We do this to monitor your illness and medication.


What are some preventative measures I can take?

  • Nominate your pharmacy by calling/coming in

  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush after each meal

  • Floss daily before bedtime

  • Use an oral rinse after flossing

  • Avoid sugary foods, coffee, and tobacco


You can request a repeat prescription by putting it in writing and dropping it into the surgery or by post. Please include a stamped self addressed envelope if you wish your script to be posted .

We now offer online repeat prescriptions, you can therefore request your repeat prescription from the comfort of your own home. Please see "online services" option on the right to read more.

Please allow at least 2 working days before collecting the prescription.

Please note that prescriptions requests cannot be taken over the telephone because possibilty of error.
