Methods of Ordering your Repeat Prescriptions
If you regularly take some type of treatment you will be given a repeat prescription request form. About one week before you need more treatment, please send us your completed form using one of the methods listed below:
- Online (via the link at the top of this page): You can view your current repeat medication and order the items you require. BEFORE you use this system you need to visit the practice to be registered for a username and password. Before giving you these details we will ask to see photographic proof of identity such as driving licence/passport/bus pass.
- By Post - Send your completed request form to us. If you include a stamped addressed envelope we will send it back to you.
- By Fax: Charles Hicks Centre 01480 434104, Roman Gate 01480 456162
- In Person - Drop your completed request from into reception.
Please note we cannot take prescription requests over the telephone.

Collecting your Prescription
Take the prescription to your chemist to have it dispensed.
We do not dispense drugs at the surgery. However, most local pharmacists will collect and/or deliver your prescriptions for you but you have to arrange this yourself.
We can take no responsibility for any arrangement that you may make with another person to deliver/collect your prescriptions.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Failure to attend for review could result in the GP stopping or reducing the medication currently being prescribed.
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.
