We have a fully computerised system for prescriptions. Patients should have a request slip and this may be dropped in or posted .  

Please be aware that we are unable to process electronic prescriptions, (eg -  Pharmacy2U or other online companies for delivery to your door)  Please use your normal method of requesting ie submitting the form via the chemist or our letter box to the right of the front door. 

Repeat prescriptions are normally issued for one month at a time. This is recommended by our Clinical Commissioning Group. Under some circumstances (eg prolonged abscence from home) up to 3 months may be issued at a time.
