Prescription Policy

Please request a repeat prescription by leaving a message on our phone system by selecting the correct option. This request will then be passed by secretarial staff to one of the doctors to review, print out and sign. Hospital scripts for transfer onto GMS scripts can be dropped into the reception for review also.

If it is deemed inappropriate to provide a prescription without prior medical review, the patient will be contacted or informed.

Please allow a 48 hour turnaround time for repeat prescriptions.

Hospital Scripts for transfer will usually be ready the following day.

Prescriptions can be collected at the reception desk on the morning of the day of collection. They must be collected by the patient themselves. If this is not possible a nominated person or pharmacy is permitted to collect a prescription on behalf of a patient with their written permission. (Permission forms available at reception)
