Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions can be obtained by:

Placing a tick or X against the medication you require on the list of repeat prescriptions provided with your prescription and posting or delivering it to reception. If you want your prescription posted back to you, please also provide a self-addressed envelope with a postage stamp affixed.

You can also order online via the link at the top of this page. User name and password can be obtained in person from East Hull Family Practice Practice Morrill Street, Longhill Branch Surgery, Victoria Dock Branch Surgery or Park Branch Surgery on presentation of photographic identification. This service is only available for patient aged 16 years or over.

  • Only in exceptional circumstances will more than a month's supply be recorded.
  • Do not ask for another repeat prescription until it is a maximum of three working days, Monday to Friday, before it is due to be issued. Prescriptions are usually available for collection or posted within 48 hours.
  • Only ask for the items that you need. Many drugs are re-ordered whether they are needed or not.
  • Please book a medication review as soon as possible after the review date displayed on your prescription.

Some medicines need to be monitored more closely than others to ensure they are effective in treating certain conditions, for example patients with asthma, diabetes or heart conditions. You may be invited to have a test or attend a special clinic. If you fail to attend the GP may stop further medication until a review is possible. This decision will only be made if there is no danger of a condition deteriorating as a result.

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.

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
