HOW DO I....


(48-hour service)

Patients who are on regular treatment may request a repeat prescription by telephoning 01764 655510, calling at the Medical Centre and completing a request form, or by letter enclosing a stamped addressed envelope for reply. Two months' supply is the usual amount prescribed and the doctor will wish to see you periodically to monitor your treatment. Patients should expect to see the doctor personally at least once every six months. If you are unable to collect your prescription your chemist may be prepared to deliver it to you.

We require 48 hours' notice for repeat prescriptions which will then normally be ready for collection after 2.00pm. Requests placed on Fridays may not be ready until Tuesday afternoon. There is no facility for repeat prescriptions to be ordered or collected on Saturdays or Public Holidays so please ensure you order them in plenty of time to save upset and disappointment all round.

Please note that prescriptions can only be collected by someone over the age of 16.


The patient is responsible for self-certification for the first seven days of an illness using form SC2 that can be obtained from one's own employer. Thereafter, if appropriate, NHS certificates will be issued as part of a consultation. Please note that certificates will not be issued for illnesses of less than seven days' duration as there is no requirement for this.
