Repeat Prescriptions

If you require regular medication your doctor may arrange for you to be put on repeat prescribing. This will enable you to obtain your prescription without seeing a doctor each time your prescription is required.

All requests should be in writing and made in one of the following ways:

  • In person/post – forward your repeat slip to the surgery having clearly marked the items required. If you would like us to return your prescription through the post, please attach a stamped addresses envelope.    
  • By e-mail - to Prescription.s70997@nhslothian.scot.nhs.uk 
  • Online – follow the link at the top of this page to complete a simple registration.

Please note we do not accept telephone requests for prescriptions.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

Repeat prescriptions take 2 full working days to process before they are ready for collection at the surgery.

 Remember  weekends and bank holidays do not count as working days.  Please do not ask for the prescriptions before this time frame

If you wish your prescription to go to a pharmacy directly please allow a least 3 full working days before collection (a further 24 hours for the pharmacy to collect the prescription and  process the medication)

Requests for items not listed on your repeat request slip may take longer to process.
