Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients on long-term treatment, and are issued only with the doctor's prior agreement. Remember to make an appointment with the doctor to review your medication whenever you are asked to do so, and in plenty of time to obtain a further supply.

Ordering your Prescriptions

  1. Online using Patient Access:
    Order your Repeat Prescription using Patient Access.
    Registration is required for our online prescription ordering service.
    See our Registration notes for details.
  2. In Person:
    Return the counterfoil of the prescription document clearly marking with a tick the medication you require to reception. A box is provided in reception to enable you to deliver your prescription without having to wait.
  3. By Post:
    Post the counterfoil of the prescription document clearly marking with a tick the medication you require to the surgery, enclosing a stamped self-addressed envelope. If posting please remember to give at least one weeks notice for a first class stamp and longer if using second class.
  4. Chemist:
    You can also ask for your prescription to be collected by a local chemist. Please check at reception which chemists offer this service. Unfortunately we cannot accept responsibility for prescriptions lost in the post or by the chemist.

Due to the possibility of errors, requests for repeat prescriptions will not be taken over the telephone.

Please request repeat prescriptions well in advance of public holidays, etc.

For those that request their prescription be sent to a local pharmacy then the time will be dependant on that pharmacy. Please contact the relevant pharmacy for an indication of the timescale.

Where can I get my Prescription?

If you are on the same medication regularly and use the same pharmacy then under this scheme you can get you repeat prescriptions direct from your pharmacy, rather than getting them from your surgery each time.

If you would like to know more about this scheme then please ask your pharmacist or enquire at the surgery where we will be able to give you more information.

Electronic Prescriptions Service

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from. Find out how this could save you time.
