Repeat Prescription FAQs
AM I ELIGIBLE FOR REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS?
You will be able to order a repeat prescription if you have had a consultation with Dr Tudor at Tudor Medical Matters and been prescribed a suitable medication. Repeat prescriptions are for those patients who have long-term health conditions and require medication over an extended period of time.
HOW CAN I REQUEST A REPEAT PRESCRIPTION?
The quickest and easiest way to request a repeat prescription is to fill in the online form below. We also have hard copies of the request form in the clinic if you prefer. If your online prescription request is not accepted then we will contact you via email to let you know. You may need to see the GP to discuss your request further before we are able to issue the prescription.
will i need a medication review?
You will need at least an annual medication review for most medications, however certain medications including anti-depressants and controlled drugs will need much more frequent reviews. These reviews aim to check whether the medication is making you feel better, if you are experiencing any side effects or if you are not feeling any different or worse. Some reviews will also require further blood tests to see how the medication is affecting you.
WHY CANT I REQUEST PRESCRIPTIONS OVER THE PHONE?
We are currently phasing out telephone prescription requests to reduce the risk of errors, such as confusion with drug name pronunciation or dosage, or errors made when writing out the request. For reasons of patient safety, prescription requests should NO LONGER be made over the telephone, and written requests should be used instead. Written requests allow records to be matched accurately, correct drugs to be identified and repeated, and can reduce the risk of errors.
how long will my repeat prescription take to process?
Your repeat prescription will usually take up to two working days from the date of your request. Requests made on weekends, bank holidays or after 4.30pm will be processed from the next working day.
hOW MUCH DO REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS COST?
Repeat prescriptions are charged at £20 each (the same as an initial prescription). If you would like us to post your prescription to your home address then there is an additional charge of £1 for the envelope and first class stamp.
