Thank you. Your choice has been saved. You can change your preferences at any time.
If you need a regular prescription then, as doctors, we may not ask to see you every time. In such instances, you will be given a computer repeat request form (the white tear-off slip on the right-hand side of your usual prescription) to enable you to collect a month's or two months' medication at a time.
When you need more medicines there are several means by which you can make your request known to us:
We have a dedicated desk at the surgery for all prescription-related queries. If you merely wish to drop-off a request, then this can be posted into the secure green letterbox. However, if you have a particular question that you would like answering then please speak to a receptionist.
You can collect the prescription from us 48 hours later (except at weekends).
We will turnover the request within 48 hours from the day of receipt. If you would like the prescription returned to you please include a SAE.
USING THE ONLINE REPEAT PRESCRIPTION SERVICE
This service allows you to make a request to us at any time of day or night. Please click on the link to the left.
We appreciate from time to time everyone forgets to request prescriptions just before they run out. We would rather you let us know about the situation rather then not take any at all. We will always do our upmost to accommodate your request.
You can arrange for one of the local pharmacies to pick up your prescription from the surgery. This enables you to collect your medicines direct from them, rather than us. Forms for this purpose are available at the Totnes pharmacies. Please allow 48 hours for collection and making up prescriptions.
If you need more than 13 prescribed medicines in a year, you will save money with this.
A single prescription is £9.00, a 3 month prepayment is £29.10 and a 12 month prepayment is £104.
Click on Prescription Prepayment Application and follow the application process at the bottom of the page.
