Providing your consulting doctor agrees, you may obtain your regular medications on repeat prescription. Attached to your prescription is a printout of your repeat medication. To make your request, tick the items you require and place the list in the box at reception.

If you don't have a printout we require a written request with your full personal and medication details. It is important to use the right hand side slip attached to your repeat prescription wherever possible as this is a clear and accurate list of your medications and it will avoid mistakes often made when using hand written requests. Also to avoid mistakes we cannot accept phone requests for prescriptions.

If you use your medication printout as suggested, your new prescription should be processed in 2 working days.

All other requests will take 3 working days to process.











Online Prescriptions

The Family Practice Barrow now offers an electronic prescription service through the Patient Access website. If you would like to order your prescriptions this way you can first register on the Patient Access Website.
