How to order a repeat prescription




You are able to order your repeat prescription in a number of ways. If you would like to order via our online system you will only be able to order your repeat medications this way. If you have not used this option before, then you will have to register to do so by attending the Practice with photo ID.

The repeat prescription service is offered to allow patients to obtain on-going medication without further consultation with the Doctor, a time saving factor for all parties concerned. With this in mind repeat prescriptions will not be issued by the doctor during routine or emergency consultations.

Repeat prescription requests can be made in the following ways:

To avoid dangerous errors, we regret that prescription requests cannot be accepted by telephone unless you are housebound and cannot attend the surgery. If you are housebound you may telephone the practice after 11.00am to request a repeat prescription.


Collecting Your Repeat Prescription

We will post your prescription to you if you provide a stamped-addressed-envelope or patients can make arrangements with local chemists to request / collect prescriptions on their behalf. Prescriptions are usually ready for collection after 48 working hours. However, if you request non-repeat items your prescription could be delayed. Please also allow additional time for chemist and postal requests.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a Doctor, Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Clinical Pharmacist or Practice Nurse at least once a year to review their regular medications. Notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
