About Repeat Prescriptions
If you are on regular medication you may be given a repeat prescription. This will allow you to order your medication at set intervals over a period of time, determined by your doctor.
How to Re-Order
To re-order your repeat prescription you can either:
- Order online using Patient Services. This is the preferred method. You can view your last repeat requests, a list of your medications and also book appointments online. Access the service at www.patient-services.co.uk or at the top of any page on our website. You'll need to register first if you haven't done so. Find out how to register for Patient Services.
- Email the practice at Tay.email@example.com listing your name, date of birth, and the name of the medication together with the strength and dose. Please note: this email address should not be used to request appointments or health advice.
- Post your completed repeat slip into the prescription box at the entrance of Drumhar Health Centre.
- Hand your completed repeat slip into your chosen pharmacy
- Send your completed repeat slip to us by post
- Telephone the 48-hour repeat prescription answer machine on 01738 564236. Please have the details of your medication to hand, and clearly state your name, address, date of birth and the name of the medication together with the strength and dose.
We require at least 48 hours notice to produce a checked and signed repeat prescription.

You can also collect your prescription direct from the surgery and take it to any community pharmacy of your choice. Please note certain medications are for Pharmacy collection only. A list of pharmacies throughout Scotland is available in Scotland's Service Directory, which also includes details of other health and wellbeing services such as dental services and opticians.
If you have a long-term condition you may be interested in a serial prescription. With serial prescriptions, you can get medicines directly from your pharmacist without the need to ask your doctor for a prescription. It's part of the Medicines, Care and Review Service and is available at all community pharmacies across Scotland.
Find out more about serial prescriptions on the NHS Inform website or ask your community pharmacy.

Please re-order your repeat medications in plenty of time, especially when the practice will be closed for a public holiday.
However, if you run out of medicine outside of our normal opening hours and need some urgently, there are a few ways to get an emergency supply quickly, even if you're away from home. Find out more on nhsinform.scot and use their self-help guide on accessing medicines.
