How Do I...

Obtain A Repeat Prescription? (Monday to Friday)

These may be requested by telephone (only by the elderly and infirm), post, in person or online (password required - given on request to patient). Please telephone before 1.00pm and they will be ready for collection the next day after 2.00pm. Prescriptions cannot be given to children under the age of 12 years. For posted prescriptions please enclose a stamped, addressed envelope. Most prescriptions can only be repeated three times - after this the doctor should be consulted.

Obtain A Sickness Certificate?

You do not require a doctor's sickness certificate for any illness lasting six days or less. Your employer may, however, require you to complete a self-certification form (SC1) which is available from your employer. For any illness longer than six days you will need to see the doctor for them to issue a sickness certificate (F.med 3) and for any subsequent renewal of the certificate.
