Medication authorised by the doctor for repeat prescribing, can be re-ordered by telephone, post or by calling personally into the surgery.
There is a dedicated telephone line for repeat prescriptions from 8.30 until 12.00 pm and 2.00pm until 4.30pm pm each day Monday to Friday. Please note that a Monday morning is normally the busiest period and patients may experience some delay getting through.
The telephone number is: 01792 402210
Please allow 48 hours notice when requesting repeat prescriptions for collection at the surgery. Prescriptions can be sent to a local pharmacy of your choice however this may take longer then 48 hours.
It is the patient’s responsibility to ensure that medication is ordered in good time.
Periodically patients may be asked to see the doctor for a review of their medication before continuation of their repeat prescription. This is to ensure compliance and to ensure that patients are not taking medication unnecessarily. Some medication requires regular monitoring with BP checks, ECGs and/or blood tests.

Over The Counter (OTC) Medicines
Over the counter (OTC) medicines can be obtained without a prescription from your local community pharmacy. Last year the Local Health Board spent over £4million on OTC medication. This is money that could be better spent. We therefore encourage patients to visit their community pharmacy for advice and treatment of minor ailments. We encourage self care where appropriate for:
- Simple Analgesia
- Thrush treatment
- Cold sore treatment
- Vitmins & minerals
- Head lice treatment
- Cough and Cold Remedies
- Infantile Colic treatments
