Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions can be ordered in several ways from Worle Medical Practice where our Prescription Hub is located (please note the Prescription Help Line and Desk is only open from 10:00 each day):

Please allow 72 hours (excluding weekends and bank holidays) before collecting the prescription.

Please do not telephone your request. For reasons of safety, we do not accept requests by telephone. This frees the telephone system for emergencies and appointments. Many chemists will arrange for the collection and delivery of prescriptions.

Emergency Prescriptions

Below is a link to a leaflet for patients who may run out of their prescribed medicines when their surgery is closed and need medication urgently. Community pharmacies can get patients an emergency supply quickly, even if a patient is away from home.

Information on Emergency Prescriptions from Community Pharmacies

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor 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.

Please note we need 48 hours as a minimum to process a prescription – therefore only in exceptional circumstances and only for certain medications will an urgent request be accepted.
