Repeat Prescriptions

We are happy to issue repeat prescriptions by telephone and will send them to the chemist of your choice. Please phone when you have approximately seven days of treatment left. 

Wherever possible we would prefer it if you could telephone for routine repeat prescriptions after 10:00 and before 17.00. Your calls may be recorded for training and monitoring purposes.

Patients on regular medicine will have a computer generated list of their repeat prescriptions and can either hand this in to our receptionists or use it to specify which drugs are required when ordering by telephone. Please make sure that you keep only the most up to date version of this list. The list cannot be used to order repeat prescriptions directly from the chemist as all requests are checked by the doctor.

Altenatively you can now order online via the link at the top of this page. First time users are required to complete a simple one-off registration using this form.

just to let you know…

Please ensure you order your repeat medication in plenty time taking into consideration Pharmacies require at least 48 hours to process.

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. Also don’t forget that both chemists in Dunbar are closed on Saturday afternoons.

Medication Reviews

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.
