Prescriptions

If you need regular medication and the Doctor does not need to see you every time, you will be issued with a repeat prescription.

We do not take prescription requests by telephone under any circumstances nor prescribe sedatives for those with a fear of flying.

Order prescriptions with our Online Service

It’s quick and easy to request repeat prescriptions using our online service called Patient Services without the need to re-enter or remember information each time. The system stores all of your repeat items and shows you when they were last ordered.

You can sign up for the service by completing the Online Services Registration form. When your application has been verified the practice will provide you with the information you need to create an online account.

If you forget to request a repeat prescription

If you forget to request a repeat prescription and will run out of important medicines, a Pharmacy may be able to help you with an emergency supply.

You will be asked for identification and details of your medication requirements (e.g. a repeat prescription list or an empty medication container with your details printed on it).  Controlled drugs and antibiotics are not provided through this service. For these, you must contact 111 when the surgery is closed. When the surgery is open we can assist you provided we have a minimum of 2 full working days to process the request.

Additional information

Chronic Medication Service

The NHS Chronic Medication Service is a voluntary service for people with long-term conditions. It’s available at all community pharmacies across Scotland.

You can only use this service if you’ve registered with a community pharmacy.

Hospital and Community Requests

When you are discharged from hospital you should normally receive seven days supply of medication.

On receipt of your discharge medication, which will be issued to you by the Hospital, please contact the Surgery to provide them with this information before your supply of medication has run out.

Hospital requests for a change of medication will be checked by a prescribing clinician first, and if necessary a prescribing clinician will provide you with a prescription on request. 

However, in many situations, it will not be necessary to start taking the medication straight away and hospitals will give the prescription to the patient to take it to their GP practice. Such prescriptions in hospitals should be delivered to the Health Centre.

Please allow two working days for the prescription to be processed.

Medication reviews

Doctors at the practice regularly review the medication patients are taking. This may involve changes to your medication and is in accordance with current Health Authority policies. We may sometimes want to consult with you for a medication review and this may involve blood tests. It is very important that you attend these appointments.

Non-repeat items (acute or special requests)

‘Acute’ prescriptions are medicines that have been issued by the Doctor but not added to your repeat prescription list. This is normally a medication issued for a new condition and may require to be reviewed by a Doctor prior to it being added to your repeat prescription list.

Some medications are recorded as acute as they require to be closely monitored and reviewed. Examples include many anti-depressants, drugs of potential abuse or where the prescribing is subject to legal or clinical restrictions or special criteria.

Strong painkillers and driving

You may have noticed that the label on your painkiller medicine says: “May cause drowsiness. If affected do not drive or operate machinery an/or avoid alcohol.”

Your doctor or nurse may also have discussed side effects of painkillers with you.

Strong painkillers (or opioids) affect each person in a different way. They can make some people drowsy and reactions can be slower than usual. This may be worse if you take other medicines that cause drowsiness or if you drink alcohol. If you are someone who drives you may be wondering if it is safe for you to drive. The following information will help you to decide.

  • Do not drive if you feel sleepy as a result of taking any medication, either from the Doctor or the Pharmacy (including hay fever medicine)
  • Do not drive after drinking alcohol or taking strong drugs which have not been prescribed or recommended by your doctor for example, cannabis.
  • Do not drive on days when you have taken extra (breakthrough or rescue) doses of a strong painkiller.
