For patients on regular medication the doctor may arrange issue of repeat prescriptions without requiring an appointment. You will be given a re-order form with details of your repeat medicines.
When you need to order a repeat prescription please tick the items you require on the re-order form then either:
- Post it to Repeat Prescriptions, Fortrose Medical Practice, Station Road, Fortrose, Ross-shire IV10 8SY
- Bring the re-order form to the surgery and put it in the box at reception
- Fax the form to us on 01381 622009
- Via our secure online form (click on the link at the top of this page)
The prescription can then either be collected from the surgery (if so requested) after 2 business days (not counting weekends or bank holidays). If you ask for collection from the chemist we will send your prescription to the requested chemist. Note that the chemist usually also requires 3 days to have your prescription ready for collection, so it is important that you order your repeats in time to avoid running out. We would usually advise you to re-order if you are down to 1 week's supply.
Please note that we do not accept telephone requests for repeat prescriptions, unless by prior arrangement for the elderly frail and housebound patients.
If you risk running out of your medication and the practice is closed you can contact your pharmacy for an emergency supply. The practice will be informed by the pharmacy. Alternatively, you can contact NHS24 on 111 around the clock for help.
Return of Medicines and Drugs
Please return all unused medicines and drugs to your local Chemist or Pharmacy and not to the surgery. We do not have the facilities to dispose of unused medicines and drugs and are no longer allowed to accept them. Your co-operation is appreciated.
