Please phone the surgery on our dedicated repeat prescription answerphone line: (0191) 266 4488 (operational 24 hours a day) to order a repeat prescription at least 48 hours before you need to collect it.

Please leave details of all medications required, your name, address and date of birth.  IT IS IMPORTANT TO STATE THE NAMES OF EACH OF THE MEDICATIONS YOU NEED AND NOT JUST ASK FOR A REPEAT OF YOUR FULL PRESCRIPTION.

Prescriptions will be ready to collect after 3.00pm (allowing 48 hours between ordering and collection).  Someone else can collect for you if they are over 16 and show your repeat prescription slip.  Prescriptions can be posted to you if you provide us with a stamped address envelope.  Some chemists/pharmacists provide a collection and delivery service for people who are housebound.  Speak to your local pharmacist for more details.
