Along with your prescription you will receive an attached order form which you should keep safely until such a time that you need to re-order. When you need more medication, you can do one of the following:
Tick the items required on the form and place it in the wall mounted box located in the reception area or post it to the surgery.
Order online via the link at the top of this page. Please note that new users to the service are required to complete a registration available in surgery or can be downloaded HERE
Your prescription can be collected from the surgery or by the chemist along with your request slip.
Please contact pharmacist of your choice to arrange this service.
We do not take prescription requests over telephone.
Alternatively you can leave a written request at the reception by using our Medication Request Forms and placing it in the box provided at reception. If you cannot deliver it by hand, we will accept postal requests as long as a stamped addressed envelope is enclosed.
The practice will accept faxed requests on 029 2038 8832.
Please allow full 48 hours (2 working days) before collecting your prescriptions.

Mental Health conditions such as schizophrenia or bipolar depression,
Ischaemic heart disease, Heart Failure, Stroke, mini-stroke (TIA), Rheumatoid , Arthritis, Osteoporosis, Thyroid disease, Atrial Fibrillation,

We encourage our patients to take an active role in helping to manage their own conditions, but it is helpful to come for a review once a year.
We would like to ask for your help in this matter. By taking responsibility for your medical condition you can help ensure that you are having the best possible care.
This review process is important and we will not be able to continue prescribing repeat medications without it.
