What is a repeat prescription?
When the doctor puts you on a medication that you need to take for a prolonged period you will be given your medication, together with a paper slip enabling you to re-order your medication without seeing the doctor. The doctor will decide how many repeats of your medication they would like you to have before reviewing you again in clinic.
What to do with your repeat prescription slip?
We aim to make re-ordering repeat prescriptions as accessible, efficient and as easy as possible.
With every issue of a repeat prescription, there is a re-order slip, this is the right hand side, the white part of a green prescription. By ticking against the medication you require and returning the slip (either by dropping it in to the surgery, faxing it or posting it), a new prescription will be generated.
