Noticeboard

As restrictions ease in Scotland to level 3 we continue to remain open to patients.  If you have any COVID symptoms please contact 111 for initial assessment.  We are unfortunately not able to asses you until we receive this report from 111. Our appointments are via telephone triage initially, where a Clinician will arrange for you to come to the Practice if required at a time that is safe to do so.  This is for your protection and that of other patients, as well as to protect staff.  Our patient advisors will ask you for further details in order to direct you to the most appropriate Clinician.


Thank you for your patience and understanding at what is a challenging time.

Repeat Prescriptions

Your doctor will arrange for you to receive repeat prescription order forms when your medication is going to be required on a regular basis.

We operate a 72 hour service for repeat prescriptions (excluding Saturday & Sunday)

We do not provide a telephone order service, as this can result in error, and engages busy lines and staff.

Requests for acute prescriptions (those not prescribed on a repeat basis) will be reviewed by GPs, and be available within 72 hours.

Guidelines for Repeat Prescriptions

  • Use your repeat prescription order form
  • Request your prescriptions in good time especially prior to holiday periods. Do not wait until you run out of your medication.
  • Take it with you for information when you are attending hospital.
  • Bring, send, or post it to Jedburgh Medical Practice. You can also order online via the link on the home page – please contact reception to register.
  • Please mark the medications which you are requesting. If you wish your prescription to be posted to you, please provide a stamped self-addressed envelope.
  • We encourage patients to make use of the daily prescription collection services provided by the Jedburgh chemists.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner 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.
