  • In person - hand your repeat slip in at reception with the required items clearly ticked.
  • By post - send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.

Howdale Surgery patients can leave their repeat list at the pharmacy at Boots who will deliver it to the surgery on their behalf.

Dispensed prescriptions can be collected from the surgery during opening hours. Please note that currently the Howdale dispensary does not open until 10:00 am each weekday morning.

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.
