Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in the following ways:
- By telephone – call 0141 959 3680 and leave a message on our dedicated prescription answering machine. Please give your date of birth, telephone number and details of the medication required.
- In person – put a request sheet into the repeat prescription box at the main entrance to the surgery.
- By post – send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want it posted back to you.
- Online – ask a member of staff to register you for online access .
Please allow 48 hours for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
When you are discharged from hospital you should normally receive five days supply of medication.
On receipt of your medication requirements, which will be issued to you by the hospital, please bring this to the surgery or post via S.A.E. before your supply of medication has run out.
Hospital requests for change of medication will be checked by the GP first, and if necessary your Doctor will issue you with a Prescription. The Practice will endeavour to issue you with your prescription on that day, but it cannot be issued until your medical details are checked by the Doctor, your prescription should normally be ready by 4pm on that day, or you may be advised to attend the next day.
The Doctors will review your medication, regularly, which may involve changes to your tablets, in accordance with current health Board policies. Please be reassured that this will not affect your treatment.
