Ordering of Repeat Prescriptions
New Repeat Prescription Request Policy.
In November 2021 we initiated our online ordering of repeat prescriptions. We have made some improvements/changes along the way and as always appreciate your cooperation with this new service.
It is best practice that every patient is seen by their GP on an annual basis. If it has been more than one year since you have seen your GP, please make an appointment.
The aim and purpose of this new service is to
1) To maximise accurate prescribing of all medication
2) To maximise patient safety
3) To enable all patients to be fully aware of all medications they have been prescribed
4) To prescribe as cost effectively as possible
5) To minimise human error.
6) To minimise waste of medications
The request form can be downloaded from the link below or requested at the front desk of the surgery.
We no longer accept telephone requests for repeat prescriptions.
Please allow 72 hours from receipt of your repeat prescription form, to your chosen pharmacy receiving your script. (Please note, you must still let your pharmacy know when you would like your prescription dispensed)
All completed forms can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or dropped in fully completed to the surgery.
Your script will be reviewed by your regular GP only as preparing a prescription takes considerable time. The GP needs to review your chart to ensure that your medication requested is medically appropriate & prescribed as safely/accurately as possible.
The fee for repeat prescriptions is 20 euros (full medical card holders exempt). You will receive a text message when your prescription has been sent to your pharmacy. For payment we will send you a secure text message with a link to make your payment online. This is a system which is widely used by most GP practices.
We ask that you request all your medication at once for the whole six month duration of your script, multiple requests within this six month span may be refused and if processed will be charged for each request, full medical card holders exempt.
