Appointments and Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions are usually issued on a 2 monthly basis.

When you require a repeat prescription please contact our prescription line on: (01387) 811553.

You may also drop your request in the Deposit Box located within the surgery. It is important that you allow 2 working days before collection from the Surgery. This allows the Practice time to process and sign your prescription. The Pharmacy may have to order in your medication thereafter, so please ensure that you order your repeat medication before you run out to allow time for this to happen and to ensure that there is no break in your regular medication.

Online Prescription Ordering

We offer online Patient Access, giving patients the opportunity to book a doctors appointment online as well as requesting repeat prescriptions.

A registration information letter will be made available to you to enable you to set up your online booking account.

Scottish Bowel Screening Programme

Bowel cancer is the third most common cancer in Scotland after lung and breast cancer. 4,000 Scots are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year.

Early diagnosis of bowel cancer is essential to maximise the chances of cure. 90% of bowel cancers detected through screening are cured.

All men and women between the ages of 50 and 74 are sent a screening pack in the post, every 2 years.

We strongly encourage participation in the screening programme – it’s straightforward and could potentially save your life!

Further information can be found at the Scottish Bowel Screening Website:

Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening Programme

A screening process for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) has been introduced. AAA is a painless enlargement of the aorta, the largest blood vessel in the body. Only men aged 65 will receive an invitation to screening; men aged 66 and over can self refer.

Women will not be invited to take part in screening due to a prevalence of AAA in less than 1% in females.

Screening is done by an abdominal ultrasound scan which will look at the aorta only. The scan will take approximately 10 minutes and men will be told of the results of the scan there and then. To find out more call NHS inform on 0800 22 44 88.
