Repeat Prescriptions

Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in the following ways:

  • In person – drop your repeat slip off at reception having clearly marked the items required.
  • By post – send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want it posted back to you. Please allow a week for postal prescriptions to be ready.
  • By fax – please make sure to put all the details on the fax (fax forms are available from reception)
  • Online – via the link at the top of this page. Before you can use this service you will need to come into the practice to register with a form of photo ID (i.e. passport of photocard driving licence). You will be asked to sign a form and then we will be able to issue you with your log in details. Please do not try and register online for this service until you have picked up your log in details from the Practice.

We are not able to take prescription requests by telephone.

Electronic Prescribing Service

This service allows us to send your prescription electronically to the place you choose to get your medication, without the need for paper in some cases. If you would like your prescriptions sent this way you need to nominate a pharmacy, this works in a similar way to a prescription collection service where the pharmacy collects your prescriptions. You can get a nomination form from reception.

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.

Please allow 3 full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. The table below provides some guidance as to when your prescription will be ready:
