How to order your repeat prescription
The easiest way to order a repeat prescription is to register for online services.
Simply log in to the online portal and visit the medication section.
You then tick the prescriptions you want.
You can do this by returning the right hand half of a previous prescription with the required medications ticked, or by submitting a handwritten request.
Please put this repeat prescription request in the box on the reception desk.
You can post your prescription slip or written request to us at the practice. You can include a stamped addressed envelope for return by post if you will not be able to pick up your prescription from the surgery.
Telephone 0141 201 5100. Option 2 – Allow 48 hours for collection
Excess quantities of regular repeat prescriptions
A Scottish home and Health Department circular from 1971 clarifies the position on prescribing for patients going abroad for extended periods. It states:-
“If a patient intends to go away for a longer period(than two to three week’s holiday) he/she may not be regarded as a resident of this country and would not be entitled to the benefits of the National Health Service…. It may not be in the patient’s best interest for him/her to continue to self-medicate over such longer periods…. If a patient is going abroad for a long period, he/she should be prescribed sufficient drugs to meet his/her requirements only until such time as he can place himself/herself in the care of a doctor at his/her destination.”
Where ongoing medical attention is not necessary, the patient may be given a private prescription.
