If you are on regular medication you will be issued with a repeat prescription slip. You may request repeat prescriptions by ticking the items required on the slip. This can then be handed in at the reception desk or to the pharmacist that usually dispenses your prescription. You may post the request to the surgery if you prefer (please enclose a reply paid envelope if you want the prescription returned to you).
We will need 3 working days from receipt of the request and will send the new prescription to your chosen pharmacy. Please plan in advance to avoid running out of medication. We have been spending increasing amounts of time at the surgery looking for missing prescriptions which are actually ‘in the system’ or already en route to the pharmacies.
You may prefer to collect the prescription from reception, again please allow enough time from your request for the prescription to be printed, signed and sorted.

If you have forgotten to order your prescription on time you will not be left without treatment:
- If you are unwell you can make an appointment to see a doctor at the surgery or to ask for a telephone consultation, or when the surgery is closed, contact the out of hours service.
- If you need medication at weekends or when the surgery is closed your pharmacist can dispense your medication for a few days.
- If you have recently been to a hospital appointment and your medication has been changed, the hospital doctors should issue you with a prescription for an initial course of the new drug.
We are pleased to announce that all of our registered patients can now sign up to ‘on line’ booking of routine blood taking appointments, repeat prescriptions and access to medical records.
For further information please ask for a leaflet at reception which will explain this facility and how to access it. Alternatively download the leaflet here. You must come into Honiton Surgery in person to register for Honiton Online
