Repeat Prescriptions 

Most of out patients will collect their medicines from the dispensary at the surgery (a few of our patients at Harrington, Bransty and Hensingham will be issued with a prescription to take to the chemist).

If you require a repeat prescription please contact the dispensary, stating clearly which medicines you require. If you are exempt from paying for prescriptions, please show your card on collection of medication.

2 Working days notice is required for repeat prescriptions. Please tick the repeat medication you require on your printed form and leave this at the dispensary.

Alternatively, ring the surgery dispensing line on 01946 833155 between 10:00-13:00 Monday - Friday to order your repeat prescriptions.
