Repeat Prescriptions


You can request your repeat medication using our online services or by indicating the items you require on the tear-off slip of your prescription and bring this to the surgery or by posting it to us. 

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to speak to a doctor 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.

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed by the practice and a further one day for the pharmacy to process.  Remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

‘Introduction of the electronic prescription service (EPS2) at Heath Lane Surgery

The practice has introduced EPS2. The GP's can generate, sign and transmit a prescription to the patient’s nominated pharmacy with no need to produce a paper prescription. This electronic management of prescriptions allows patients to collect their medications from a pharmacy at a location convenient to them- it could be near your place of work.

If you wish to join in this scheme please go to your preferred pharmacy and let them know you want them to be your nominated pharmacy. They will then register your details and inform us that you have joined the EPS scheme.
