Repeat Prescription Request
Please read the information below carefully when submitting a prescription request. To order a repeat prescription, please use the form at the bottom of this page.
If you have been prescribed medication by another psychiatrist elsewhere, you will need to discuss this with your psychiatrist at The Edinburgh Practice to ensure this is something we can prescribe. If you are new to the UK and have been prescribed medication from another country, we may be unable to prescribe this.
*Repeat Prescription Info:
Please note, your request can take up to 5 working days for the prescription to be completed by your psychiatrist and sent back to the administration team for review, therefore it is good practice to submit your request no later than 14 days before you are due to run out of medication to ensure sufficient time for the team to prepare your prescription and release this to your surgery.
Following this, we ask all clients to contact their GP surgery directly to check on the status of their prescription. If your surgery has not received anything from us, please email the administration team at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0131 467 0981.
Please do not use the below form for medical advice, referrals or general enquiries. The below form is for repeat medication requests only.
If you are on a regular medication you may need to come into the practice for a medication review. As per the NICE guidelines, our psychiatrists must review clients regularly to comply with protocols.
**Our Psychiatrists work here on a part time basis, and therefore will write and release prescriptions when in clinic. We do not have the facilities to offer urgent prescriptions due to this.**
We do not accept requests by telephone as we like to keep the lines free for urgent calls. Only in exceptional circumstances will requests for repeat prescriptions be accepted via telephone.
