Notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

On occasion, a Doctor may think that you need a medication review sooner, and we will get in touch with you to arrange this.

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
