Repeat Prescriptions


Please note that we require two full working days in order to process repeat prescriptions and, if there are any queries with your prescription, it may take a little longer.

We are very happy to accept prescription requests up to two weeks early, to ensure that there is no delay to you.

You may wish to register to manage your repeat prescriptions online via the link at the top of this page. Please note, you are required to register at reception for this service prior to using it. Please see first tab for information. If you do so, after logging in, you will be able to see the list of medications that are on repeat. If you have any message, there is a comments box towards the bottom of the page.

Repeat prescriptions may be obtained by:

  • Registering to order your repeat prescription online. Please see previous tab for information.
  • Handing in re-order form to reception or your pharmacy stating drugs required
  • Posting the request, enclosing a stamped addressed envelope

The completed prescription will be ready within 48 hours from request. Repeat prescriptions can be collected at reception or directly from the local chemists, either Main Street or Holmhead in Kilbirnie, or from Well or Penmans pharmacy in Beith. Patients must inform the receptionist where they wish to collect prescription. Repeat prescriptions are issued for items which have been agreed by a doctor previously. All patients with repeat prescriptions must be seen at predetermined intervals by a doctor.

Pharmacy Services

If you have a preferred pharmacist, you can go to them and nominate them as your designated pharmacy. You can also hand in your repeat prescription request to them. Subsequently, all of your prescriptions will automatically be sent to this nominated pharmacy. Please note that some prescription items, such as controlled drugs, cannot be sent electronically.

Medication Reviews

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