Prescriptions

How do I order my repeat prescription?

  • By using our Repeat Prescription Request form.
  • Using our online services – Patient Access. If you would like to register for this free service please complete our Register for Online Services Form.
  • Requesting a repeat prescription through your local pharmacy order and collect service
  • In writing – A written request should be posted to the practice or hand delivered into the black box by the reception desk. Wherever possible please use the tear off slip provided with the prescription, ticking the items required.

Please do not request repeat prescriptions during face to face or telephone consultations, or by telephone.

Prescriptions will be posted back to you if a stamped addressed envelope is provided; please allow additional time for postage.

Some local pharmacies offer an ordering and collection/delivery service for the housebound or elderly. If you have made such an arrangement please use the “comments” box to say which pharmacy will be collecting the prescription if ordering online. If you need to order more items than there are lines available, simply return to the page and enter the additional items as a new order.

Please allow two full working days (excluding weekends) and then you can collect the prescription from the surgery after 16:00 the following day.

Important note

We can only accept repeat prescription requests for items which the doctor approved for repeat prescription ordering, and for which you have not yet used up your quota of issues before the doctor needs to review your medication.

We are usually able to fulfil your request but occasionally there may be reasons why we cannot issue a repeat prescription for some or all of the items. The receptionist will explain when you call to collect the prescription.

Medication reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor 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. If you have been asked to complete a medication review online, please use our Medication Review form.
