Repeat Prescription Service
Due to the increasing demand for prescriptions, we regret that we have to make some changes to our repeat prescription service. Repeat prescription requests will take 3 working days to issue and will be ready for collection from the surgery after 2.00pm on the collection day. The table below shows the Order days and the relevant Collection Days.
|Prescription Ordered On:||Prescription Ready For Collection at Surgery|
|Monday||After 2.00pm on Thursday|
|Tuesday||After 2.00pm on Friday|
|Wednesday||After 2.00pm on Monday|
|Thursday||After 2.00pm on Tuesday|
|Friday||After 2.00pm on Wednesday|
|Saturday and Sunday||After 2.00pm on Thursday|
If you have arranged for your prescription to be delivered direct to a pharmacy you will need to contact them to establish a collection day. We would advise you to place your order 10 – 14 days ahead of needing it to ensure there is enough time for the pharmacy and us to process your request.
