If you are on regular treatment your doctor may agree to you having repeat medication for a period of time, without making an appointment.
In the interests of safety, we do not accept requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.
Ordering Repeat Prescriptions
You can order a repeat prescription in the following ways:
- Online through the website.
- By completing a prescription form, and dropping it off at the practice.
- By posting your request to the practice. If you wish your prescription to be posted back to you, please send a stamped, addressed envelope.
- By visiting the practice.
Please allow 3 working days for routine prescriptions.
Local Pharmacy Services
The local pharmacists also operate a repeat prescription service whereby they will order your medication for you and save you the bother of dropping the form into the health centre.
Please discuss this with your chosen pharmacist.
Electronic Prescription Service
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is a NHS service that allows us to send your prescription(s) directly to your chosen pharmacy. This paper-free prescription service means that you do not have to come into the surgery to collect your prescription.
We encourage all patients to register for this free service.
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.
View the cost of prescriptions on the NHS website.
You can also find out if you are entitled to free prescriptions.
