If your doctor feels you require medication long term, you may obtain repeat prescriptions by contacting the surgery (in writing) with your request.
You may hand in written requests for repeat prescriptions at reception, at the local chemists, send in a postal request to the surgery, drop in the postbox at our main entrance or email requests to TAY.firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow at least 2 working days for this service.
Alternatively, you may wish to sign up for our online services (registration required) - please ask at reception for details or download this registration form to complete and return to reception (DOCX, 221KB).
Remember to advise us which local chemist you wish to use. Please allow at least 3 working days for any medication which is not on repeat.
We ask that patients do not telephone their request for repeat prescriptions to the surgery but rather follow the advice given above.
Medicines in Scotland: What's the right treatment for me?
Healthcare Improvement Scotland has produced a short, animated video to accompany the medicines booklet published in March 2017, Medicines in Scotland: What’s the right treatment for me?
The video provides an accessible means of promoting the key messages of the medicines booklet, focusing on the patient journey, and explains how people can work with their healthcare professional to decide whether a medicine is needed. It also explains the likely benefits and possible risks of medicines.
