Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
- By hand – drop your repeat slip into either surgery with the required items clearly marked. There is a post-box at the side of the surgery entrance at Brading and a letterbox in the side door at Lake for you to leave your request when the surgery is closed.
- By post – enclosing a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
- By fax to 01983 406277 (Brading) or 01983 403543 (Lake).
We also offer an Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which allows your prescriptions to be sent electronically to your nominated pharmacy – please ask the reception team or your local pharmacy for more information.
Our main concern is that we operate a safe and efficient system for all patients; therefore we do not accept telephone requests for repeat prescriptions.
Any requests for items which are not on repeat have to be authorised by the doctor. These prescriptions may take longer to be issued or may not be available without an appointment. Please remember to tell us clearly how you wish to collect your prescription.
N.B. WE ARE CURRENTLY INCREASING FROM ONE MONTH TO TWO MONTH SUPPLY FOR ALL REPEAT MEDICATIONS.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
