Patients on regular medication will require repeat prescriptions and for a safer and speedier service, repeat prescriptions are computerised. Your doctor will have entered onto the computer what medication you are taking and each time a new prescription is produced by the computer a new request form is generated for you to make your next request.
Requests for repeat prescriptions are not taken over the telephone, for medico-legal reasons, as errors can occur in verbal communication.
- Please allow three working days for your prescription to be processed.
- If you have more that one repeat prescription please try and order all your items together
- Clearly indicate where you would like the prescription form sent to on the repeat prescription request form. We can send you prescription to one of the following nominated chemists:
- Delmergate, 145 Reculver Road
- Bornos, 159 Station Road
- Boots, 161a Station Road
- Boots, 116 Mortimer Street

We can also send your prescription to your home address, but remember to enclose a stamped addressed envelope. Alternatively, you can collect your prescription form from the surgery.
- Either deliver or post your repeat prescription request form to the surgery.
- If you are receiving any medication, which is not on your request form, please add this clearly on a request slip and this may be added after verification with the doctor. NB: This may take longer than 3 working days.
