How to Request a Repeat Prescription

Repeat prescriptions can either be requested:

All repeat prescription requests that arrive at the surgery before 10.00am will normally be available for collection from 2.00pm the same day.

Requests received after 10.00am can normally be collected after 2.00pm on the following weekday.

You will be given a computerised repeat prescription request slip (counterfoil) which allows you to tick the items you require when ordering next time. If you do not have a counterfoil for re-ordering purposes, please put your repeat prescription request in writing.

We regret that telephone requests for repeat prescriptions cannot be accepted under any circumstances.

Prescription Forms

There are two main parts to the printed prescription form that you will receive from us.

The left hand side details the medication you have been prescribed and need to collect from a chemist, or if you qualify for this service, from our dispensary (see previous page).

Note: the "notes overleaf" referred to at the bottom of the form relate to whether or not you have to pay for your prescriptions.

The right hand side is for you to tear off and keep until you are running low on your prescribed medication. This side will be blank if you are unlikely to need the medication again. However, if you think that you will need it again please consult your doctor.

If you do have a repeat prescription arranged then complete by ticking:

  1. which medication you require
  2. where you want to collect it

Finally return the right-hand side of the form to the surgery and we will arrange for your medication to be available in your preferred location after 24 hours.

A date for your medication review is also given on this side of the form. You may not be prescribed medication after this date until the review has been completed. (see above)

Prescriptions

A prescription for medication may be issued following a consultation with a doctor.

A form will be issued detailing what is to be taken and when.

The prescription form can be taken to a chemist for the medication to be dispensed, or to our surgery dispensary if you qualify for this service.

Our on-site dispensary is able to dispense medications to patients who registered for this service and who live more than one mile from the chemist on the High Street, Thrapston. It is also available to all patients when the chemist is closed. We can also dispense medications to registered disabled patients wherever they live.

A repeat prescription may be issued up to the recommended review date, after which point a medication review may be necessary.
