We do not take request for repeat prescription over the telephone unless you are noted to be housebound on your medical record. We do however have facilities at the prescription ordering direct (POD) which you can telephone on 02476246072 between 8am-5pm, or you can use your side slip to tick the items that you require and post it in the repeat prescription box by the front reception counter.
Please allow at least 48 hours before visiting your collection point.
We can only process requests for repeat prescriptions – if you require a new medication you will need to book an appointment or speak to one of our doctors on the telephone.
