Repeat Prescriptions

We have a computerised repeat prescription service. Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients with long-term conditions who receive regular treatment and your doctor will decide who can have a repeat prescription.

You can ask for a repeat prescription:

  • online via the link at the top of this page
  • by phoning - (Bentley 11:00 – 17:00, Woodside 10:00 – 17:00)
  • by calling into the surgery when the reception is open
  • by post (please include a SAE)

Wherever possible please give the exact drug names when ordering.

Please give at least 48 hours notice if you can.


Medication Reviews

From time to time we will ask you to see your doctor to review your medication. We do this to monitor your illness and medication.

Please ensure you make an appointment when you see the notification on your repeat slip.
