Prescriptions

Requests for repeat prescriptions should be ordered online via the link at the top of this page or at Reception by depositing the slip on the right-hand side of your prescription in the red box. Please refrain from phoning for repeat prescriptions unless already agreed with the Practice.

Acute prescription requests are separate from your regular medication and can be classed as a "one off" to help you with your treatment. These requests are processed differently to repeat requests. These can be made online, via askmyGP or at Reception.

Prescription requests will be processed and available for collection at the Practice or sent to the chemist of your choice within 48 hours. Please allow additional time for the chemist to prepare your items for dispensing.

Please hand in any hospital discharge prescriptions promptly to allow any changes to be made to your ongoing treatment and support.

If you require any form of Contraception, please fill in the following form and hand it into Reception or email it into the Practice. You can obtain blood pressure readings from your local chemist. 

Contraception Form

To sign up for online ordering, please complete this form and send it burnbrae.medicalpractice@lanarkshire.scot.nhs.uk - Online Prescription Form. We will send you instructions to register for this service.

We have composed a short leaflet on how to navigate this service - Online Prescriptions Help Leaflet. If you are still having issues, please give us a call or submit a request through askmyGP.


Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication may be asked to see a doctor, practice pharmacist or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.


Minor Ailment Service
