HOW DO I....
OBTAIN A REPEAT PRESCRIPTION?

If your doctor has agreed to you obtaining repeat prescriptions these may be requested by telephone, in writing or in person. Repeat prescriptions can be sent to the Chemist provided that you have signed the form authorising us to do this. Please allow 48 hours for prescriptions going to the Chemist to be processed. Prescriptions can be posted to you if you provide us with a stamped addressed envelope.

HOW DO I....
OBTAIN SICK LINES?

You are responsible for self-certification for the first seven days of any illness (including Sundays) and your employer should provide a form SC2. Self-employed patients should complete a form SC1, which is available from the DWP. Thereafter you will need a doctor's sick line. Please remember to make your return appointment in plenty of time if your sick line is to be extended.
