Prescriptions Generally

The Practice is not a dispensing practice. We prefer if you nominate a Pharmacy for your prescription(s) to be sent to, several Pharmacies have a daily collection of prescriptions from the Practice, see list below.


Notice Period

Prescriptions requested are normally ready for collection from your Pharmacy of choice after 48 hours. The time we take to prepare your prescription allows your doctor adequate time to check your request and review your medication where appropriate. We believe this system ensures a high standard of care. Please avoid asking our staff to process your request any quicker.


By telephone

If you are on regular treatment we can issue a repeat prescription. if you telephone 0141 - 211 6999 choose Option 2, leave your details; the prescription can be collected after 48 hours from your Pharmacy of choice.


By hand

You should simply tick the items you need on the counterfoil of your last prescription. There is no need for an accompanying letter and, if you are bringing your request to reception, we prefer that you do not use an envelope. Please add on the top right hand corner of your request which Pharmacy you wish your prescription to go to.

These are Pharmacies that have an arranged uplift service from us:

Thistle Pharmacy (Dumbarton Road)

Lloyds Pharmacy (Alderman Road)

Lloyds Pharmacy (Dyke Road)

Lloyds Pharmacy (Knightswood Shopping Centre)

Boots (Whitecrook)

Willis Pharmacy (Dumbarton Road)

If you do not have your counterfoil, simply write your name, address, date of birth and a list of the required medication on a piece of paper. You should ask for your repeat medication in advance of needing it, please allow up to 48 hours. Please ask for everything you will need during the next month as it will be easier for us than dealing with several prescriptions for one individual during the course of a month. Please remember that we deal with a large number of prescription requests every day and it is difficult for the staff and the doctors to process last minute urgent requests.


For Delivery

We can also arrange delivery by a local pharmacy for housebound patients.


Prescription collection

We prefer that you choose a nominated Pharmacy for your prescription to be sent to.  Should you not be able to nominate a pharmacy due to lack of knowledge of the area our Receptionists might be able to help you choose a suitable Pharmacy. In case a you have not nominated a Pharmacy, your prescription will be kept here for collection and it will only be posted if you have supplied a stamped addressed envelope. If you are using the postal service to send your request and receive your prescription(s) back, we suggest you allow at least seven days.
