An Acute Prescription is medication that you have received before and would like to request again without having to make an appointment even though it's not been authorised as repeat prescription. If you wish to request a repeat prescription please register for our Repeat request system.
To make your request, fill in the form below. See under the form for terms and conditions.
We need 2 working days notice to process your request. If you need your medication more urgently than that, please contact our receptionists rather than using this on-line utility.
We need you to provide a reason for your request because you are requesting medication that has not alteady been authorised as a Repeat Prescription. The reason you give will be recorded in your medical records and presented to your doctor for a decision about whether to prescribe. It's OK to keep your reasoning short, simple and to the point. However, If your given reason does not explain why you need the medication, your doctor will not be able to deal with your request.
You may request four items per form submitted.
If you wish to receive an email copy of your request for your records, fill in your email address before you submit your request.
If you make a mistake, don't worry. Just send the information again and explain your error in the comments section.
Occasionally, at the doctor’s instruction, you may be asked to make an appointment for review of your medical condition. This will be discussed with you when you come in to pick up your prescription.
