The Doctor will issue repeat prescriptions for patients on long term medication and indicate how often you should come for review.
If you need a repeat prescription, please give as much notice as possible. If you are asking for your medication early because you are going away on holiday, please remember to tell us.
Subject to necessary reviews we will always provide repeat prescriptions from the practice within 2 working days. However, any prescription requests received after 4 pm will not be processed until the following day.
The pharmacy will also need time to issue your drugs.
Requests for repeat prescriptions are accepted in person at reception, by post or you can order your repeats using our online service. Please only order the medicines you require.
Please note we will not provide repeat prescriptions over the telephone.
You may ask for your repeat prescription to be collected by an Amesbury or Durrington pharmacy. Please ensure that this is clearly indicated when requesting your prescription and allow sufficient time for collection.
Repeat Prescription Service Managed by Chemists
We have had increasing concerns about the safety and reliability of the managed repeat prescription service run by Boots and Lloyds Chemists. As of 1 January 2017, we will no longer accept prescription requests via this service.
We do offer the facility to manage your prescription requests online, if you wish to register for this service, please speak to a member of the reception team.
