Repeat Prescriptions

If you need to take medication on a regular basis your Doctor may decide to issue you with repeat prescriptions which will remove the necessity for you to be seen every time you need a fresh supply of medicines. All repeat prescriptions are produced on the Practice computer system and you will be given a repeat slip listing the medication that you can order without seeing the Doctor.
