Repeat Prescription Request Form

Repeat Prescriptions

For reasons of safety the surgery does not accept requests for prescriptions by telephone.

If you are on regular medication there is a system for providing you with prescriptions between your necessary check-ups with the doctor or nurse. Please note that it takes a minimum of two working days to process these requests.

For regular (repeat) prescriptions the best and safest way is to use the tear-off slip issued with each prescription. Always use the latest one issued and do not wait until you have run out of medication. The re-order slip should be placed in the designated box on reception. If you cannot do this yourself please consider:

  1. Asking someone to do it for you.
  2. Posting in your request. Please use a first class stamp and our correct postcode. We will post your prescription back to you if you enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Please allow one week if you wish to make requests this way.
  3. If you are housebound and have somebody to collect your medication from the pharmacy, most pharmacies will collect the prescription from the surgery and deliver your medication to you.
  4. Fax your request to 0161 787 9159.
  5. Email your request to prescription.samc@nhs.net stating the name of your doctor. (Please be aware that this email address is not secure and just like sending a normal email. If you have an issue with this please use one of our other methods for sending your repeat prescription request.)

Please include your name, date of birth and address in all requests.

Order Online

You can also order online via the link at the top of this page. Please note new users to the system are required to complete a simple registration first.

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.
