Why Didn’t I Get A Prescription?


Prescriptions are not always necessary. Patients often think they should receive a prescription after every consultation with their GP. However, quite often a prescription is not necessary. For example, we are often asked for antibiotics for viral infections. Our advice would be to take paracetamol and drink plenty of liquids to try and lower the temperature, rather than take antibiotics.

Antibiotics could be harmful if you take them for a sore throat which then turns out to be glandular fever. You could develop a severe skin condition as a result. Talking problems through with your GP can often help and you can treat many illnesses with home remedies.

This advice is not intended to put you off consulting your GP. We want you to continue to make appointments as normal, but the message we want to get across is: don't expect a prescription as a matter of course. There may be a more suitable alternative available for you.

How Do I Get A Repeat Prescription?


As of 1st February 2018, the Prescription Line has been DISCONTINUED.
Please see the right hand side of your prescription for more information.

Request Repeat Prescription On-Line


This service has been DISCONTINUED.

This action has been taken for several reasons:
  • Some patients have requested prescriptions which we have not received
  • A new service centrally is now available through ‘My Health Online’

If you wish to request prescriptions online in the future you will now have to register with My Health Online.

Apologies for any problems this may cause but many thanks for supporting our online prescription service in the past.
