Woodlands Surgery - Prescriptions can be requested by telephoning between 1.00 - 5.00pm or bring your repeat slip to the surgery.

Lavender Centre - Prescriptions are not taken over the telephone, bring your repeat slip to the surgery.

 We also offer an on line prescription service. This service is to be altered from February 2014 to make the ordering of repeat prescriptions easier to use, however patients will need to obtain a password and patient number from reception to use this updated version.

Your script will normally be ready within 24 hours. If your request needs to be authorised by the doctor it will take longer. If you enclose a stamped addressed envelope we can post your prescription to you. You can also fax a copy of your request to one of the numbers below:

  • Middle Chare - 0191 3887448

Repeat Prescription Collection Service

If you take medication on repeat prescription you may wish to take advantage of a free service offered by several of the local pharmacies. They will offer to collect prescriptions from the surgery and have the medication ready for collection at an agreed time at their premises. If you wish to take advantage of this service you can find out which pharmacies participate by phoning your usual pharmacist or asking at the surgery reception.
