Repeat medications are requested in writing via post, or handing it in at the surgery. You can also use our online prescription request facility.
Ouse Valley Practice is a dispensing practice to any patient who lives more than a mile from a chemist. If you live within a mile of a chemist, the law states you must be a ‘non-dispensing’ patient and you will have to take your prescription to a chemist. However, arrangements can be made to send your prescription to a chemist of your choice by providing the surgery with a supply of stamped addressed envelopes.
Patients on repeat medication will routinely be asked to see a doctor for a medications review and a notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
