If you need regular medication and do not need to be reviewed every time, you may be given a repeat prescription. These forms are attached to your prescription. When you need further medication please place this form in the box provided in reception with the items you require ticked appropriately.
There are extra forms at reception should you mislay your original form. These will usually be ready for collection within 48 hours of the written request (excluding weekends and bank/local holidays). We ask you to collect your prescription within 72 hours but not less than 48 hours. Bearing in mind that the door opening and closing times.
Two days later your prescription should be ready for collection. You are welcome to post or fax (020 7421 1207) prescription requests to us. If you supply a stamped self addressed envelope we will be happy to post the prescription to you.
Please note your individual review date on your repeat form. You will need to make an appointment with a doctor to review your medication, before further supplies are issued.
We do not accept requests for repeat prescriptions by telephone. This prevents dangerous errors being made and leaves the telephone lines free for urgent matters. Also we do not duplicate hospital prescriptions as the correct procedure is for these to be dispensed at the hospital dispensary at the time of the attendance.
