If you are a new patient please make an appointment to see a doctor before requesting repeat medication.
Non-urgent advice: Notice
Repeat medication can be collected 48 hours – (2 working days) after your request has been received.
Herefordshire Prescribing Committee recommends that 28 days should be the usual treatment length for routine repeat prescriptions, and we comply with these recommendations at Fownhope Medical Centre. Where certain medications are only available in larger packs, exceptions to this rule apply, such as some hormone replacement therapies and oral contraceptive pills.
Different Ways you can Order Your Repeat Prescription

You can order repeat prescriptions by telephoning the Dispensary on 01432 860241 between 10 am and 12 noon. However, with the high volume of calls we receive, you may find that the dispensary number is often engaged. Therefore, it is advisable to order your medication by one of the alternative methods as suggested above. If you choose to order your repeat medication by telephone, please have all the necessary information to hand, to ensure that you order the correct items.
