For patients on regular medication your doctor may issue you with a repeat prescription request. This will save you having to see the doctor each time you need more medication. The request may be handed in or posted to the surgery.
If you wish, you can order your repeat prescription directly through this site. Click on the link above and complete the simple registration form.

Please ensure you order your medication in time.
If you wish us to post the prescription back to you, please enclose an SAE and allow a little longer for your prescription to reach you.
Alternatively, you can ask one of the local chemists to collect your prescription. You can mark this on your request and we will ensure it is passed to them for collection.
If you ask someone to collect your prescription from the surgery on your behalf, please note that we will be unable to maintain your patient confidentiality in these circumstances.
We regret that staff cannot accept telephone requests for medication as this can lead to serious errors.
Regal Chambers Surgery follows local healthcare policy decisions on which medications to prescribe. When patients who are already on regular medication join the surgery, we take this opportunity to review the medication to see if the latest advice means that we should make changes to the patient's prescription. This is one of the reasons why new patients are asked to book an appointment with their GP to discuss their medication before it is entered into our repeat prescription system.
We also undertake this process when we carry out medication reviews.
