How do I order my Repeat Prescription?
Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
- Online – Using our prescription requests triage
- Using our online services – Patient Access. If you are not register for online services and you would like to register, please complete our online Register For Online Services Form
- In person
- By post
Please allow 2 working days for routine prescriptions. Repeat prescriptions cannot be taken over the telephone.
If you are asked to collect your prescription in person, your name and address will be checked when collecting the prescription from reception.
The collegiate medical centre’s practice policy is not to prescribe benzodiazepines or zopiclone (tablets like diazepam and temazepam) to new patients under 50 years old, as they are associated with many problems.
For new patients over 50 years old, we will need confirmation from your previous doctor of your prescription. We will try to obtain this today, but if we cannot contact your previous doctor, we will not prescribe until we have done so.
If confirmation is obtained, we will prescribe them to you on a reducing basis, over a period of time. You may produce dated repeat prescription sheets.
Please keep your booked review appointment and try to see the same doctor each time you attend. We will not prescribe benzodiazepines as an emergency.
