Prescriptions

To ensure that you do not run out of your medication you must allow a minimum of FORTY-EIGHT HOURS NOTICE for a repeat prescription. Bear in mind that we are not open at the weekend. If you require additional medication to your normal repeat prescription or if you require antibiotics you will need to see the Doctor. Prescriptions must be collected in person from Reception during opening hours. There may be times when the Doctor will need to see you before a repeat prescription can be issued. In any event, your medication must be reviewed at least every six months.

Private patients with a prescription from a consultant or hospital should take them directly to the pharmacy to be dispensed.

If you have a medical card and have been given a hospital prescription, you may take the script immediately to the pharmacy and they will give you a one-week supply of the medication providing you present it on the day you received it from the hospital. Once you have a supply, you can bring the prescription to the surgery and the doctor will transfer it to a GMS prescription which you can collect after forty eight hours and take to the pharmacy. They will then dispense the balance of the medication.
