Repeat Prescriptions

If you are 80 years or older you must see the doctor to request a new prescription.

Patients less than 80 years old who have been seen in the last six months may be able to request a repeat prescription through the nurse. If it is longer than six months since your last doctors appointment or you have recently been discharged from hospital you will need to make an appointment with your doctor to get your new prescription.

If you are getting a repeat prescription for blood pressure medication or contraceptive pill and you are not seeing your doctor, you will also need to see the nurse for a blood pressure check. Please book a nurse appointment when you phone to order your prescription. There is a small charge, on top of the prescription charge, for seeing the nurse.

Please give us 24 hours (preferably 48hrs) notice before you need to collect your prescription from us or the pharmacy of your choice.
