If the GP (doctor) thinks you require a repeat prescription at regular intervals, you will be issued with a prescription often electronically and your pharmacist should give you a repeat order slip.
You can order your repeat prescriptions in the following ways:
- Online using our Repeat Prescription Form or via the Patient Access website.
- By Email – We do accept repeat prescriptions requests from patients as well as pharmacists as long as the email address sent from is the same as that on your file. Please ensure that your email contains your name, date of birth, NHS number (found on your prescription) and exact medication details and we can sent them your prescriptions via computer
- By ticking the boxes on the repeat prescription form and leaving in the repeat prescription box at the surgery.
- By post – enclose a stamped addressed envelope if you wish it to be posted back
- By Pharmacist – you can order and pick up your prescriptions from your selected pharmacist. Please sign up at your regular pharmacist to be able to access this service you. Your chemist can request your medication on your behalf. Please ask your chemist to do so.
Please note: we do not accept prescription orders over the telephone as this can lead to errors.
Collecting your prescription
Prescriptions will be ready for collection 2 working days after ordering (excluding weekends and bank holidays).
You can collect your prescription from our reception, or we can post it to you, if you provide a self addressed envelope when ordering.
We can also send your prescription to a pharmacy of your choice using the NHS Electronic Prescription Service. If you would like to collect your prescription this way, please register for the Electronic Prescription Service.
From time to time your treatment will need to be reviewed by the doctor or practice nurse. When this is necessary you will be asked to attend a consultation to review your medication.
If you have been advised by the surgery that your medication review is due please complete our form.
