PLEASE NOTE : DUE TO THE INCREASED WORKLOAD CAUSED BY CORONOVIRUS (COVID-19) AND HAVING TO CLOSE BACTON SURGERY - REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS ARE CURRENTLY TAKING 5 WORKING DAYS TO PROCESS.
Repeat prescriptions are authorised by your doctor once your condition has stabilized. You will be issued with a computer printed repeat slip for a defined period of time before your next review.
Only medication listed can be dispensed. If the medication you are requesting is not on your repeat slip, then the dispensers will not be able to issue it until you have been seen or have contacted your doctor.
Normally no medication will be dispensed after the printed review date. Our normal issue is 28 days supply. We cannot accept repeat requests over the telephone, via email or fax: please use patient online access, post or hand in your slip. This avoids mistakes. Please give at least 5 working days’ notice and plan ahead for holidays.
Repeat prescriptions will be available for collection five working days after they are ordered. When ordering after 6.30pm, before 8am or at weekends or Bank Holidays, the five working days starts the next day the surgery is open.
Our service is only available to patients who live more than 1 mile from a pharmacy.
We do not accept telephone requests (to avoid any possible prescribing errors)
