Medication Reviews

We review any regular medication on a repeat prescription annually and wherever possible the doctor will do this without you having to attend the surgery.

Repeat Dispensing

If you, or someone you care for, use the same medicines regularly, you may be able to benefit from repeat dispensing from your pharmacist.  This means you won't have to visit the surgery every time you need more medicines. 

 Further Information

Prescribing of Over The Counter Medicines is Changing

Your GP, nurse or pharmacist will not generally give you a prescription for over the counter medicines for a range of minor health concerns.

Instead, over the counter medicines are available to buy in a pharmacy or supermarket in your local community.

Prescription Synchronisation

If you would like to save time and order all the medication you have on repeat at the same time rather than irregular times throughout the month please use the form below.
