Ordering Repeat Prescriptions

Your GP may arrange for you to have a repeat prescription for your medication. Reordering your repeat prescription is simple and easy, Lake Road Practice allows you to reorder your prescription through a variety of ways; including via our secure online services. You may request your Repeat Prescription in any of the following ways:

In order to ensure safety and minimise the potential for confusion/error, telephone requests are not accepted.

Prescriptions may be collected after 48 hours, during surgery opening times, by a responsible person.

If you leave a stamped, addressed envelope with your request, we will post the prescription to you when completed. Please allow some extra time when using this service.

If you would like your prescriptions to be sent directly to a nominated pharmacy, please let us know in writing so that we may record it on your medical record.

Synchronising Prescriptions

If you would like to save time and order all the medication you have on repeat at the same time rather than irregular times throughout the month please use this form.

When you next need to request an item on repeat count up all the tablets you have and fill in the above form. Your doctor will issue a “one off” prescription of the tablets you need to synchronise all your medication to within a day or two.
