Repeat prescriptions

You have a number of options for requesting a repeat prescription:

  • Order online, contact reception for details
  • Tick the box(es) on Part B of the prescription form and return it to the Surgery
  • Fax your request to Fax no. 01207 215150

We do not accept requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone. This is because it can be unsafe to do so.

Please note that this system is only meant to cover those items for which you are issued repeat prescriptions. It cannot be used for items which you receive infrequently.

We will have repeat prescriptions ready for collection 24 hours after receiving the request for them. Prescriptions will be ready for collection 48 hours after recieving the request if you choose the Prescription Collection Service.

The Prescription Collection Service is designed to ensure that you get your repeat medication with a minimum of fuss.

The pharmacies taking part in the scheme are National Co-op Chemists LTD. (formerly Boots) of Consett, Lloyds (Consett), Moss (Consett), Consett Pharmacy (delivery service only) and Leadgate Pharmacy.

Call in and ask one of our receptionists for the Pharmacy collection service form or print one and hand it in to the surgery

Please note that to access the online system you must present at reception with two forms identification, including one photo ID and one with a current address from a financial institution (utility bills are not acceptable).
