Repeat Prescriptions

Each GP surgery or primary care practice will have its own procedure for repeat prescribing but the following rules are common to most, if not all. Patients who are well-known to the practice who have a stable condition like asthma, hypertension or diabetes could be allowed to get a repeat prescription for up to six months. Repeat prescriptions are never given to patients who are not known to the practice and there is probably a blanket ban on repeats for narcotics and other drugs that could be misused as doctors are expected to monitor these drugs carefully.

  • You must allow at least 24 hours for a repeat prescription request.
  • Also remember that it is prudent to keep at least 2 weeks supply of any regular medications in reserve (in case of National Emergency).
  • From time to time, various checks or monitoring of certain medical conditions are required and you will need to be seen by a Doctor, before a prescription can be issued. We will inform you when this is necessary.
