Repeat Prescriptions


We do not accept telephone requests to avoid any possible prescribing errors.

We require a minimum of 3 working days to process a prescription request and ask that you plan ahead at busy times of the year such as Bank Holidays.

Ordering a Repeat Prescription

When you order a prescription online, you can have it sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice. This is called a nomination.

Pharmacy Ordering / Collection Service

Pharmacies offer a prescription collection service from our Practice

Your pharmacy can also order your medication on your behalf. This saves you time and unnecessary visits to the Practice. Please contact the Pharmacy of your choice for more information if you wish to use this service.

About pharmacists

As qualified healthcare professionals, pharmacists can offer advice on minor illnesses such as:

  • coughs
  • colds
  • sore throats
  • tummy trouble
  • aches and pains

They can also advise on medicine that you can buy without a prescription.

Find a pharmacy

In Person

You can order in person by returning the right-hand half of a previous prescription for the required medications.

Or, you can submit a handwritten request. You may also write out an order for someone else. You must include the patient's name, date of birth and requested medication.

By Post

You can post your prescription slip or written request to us at the Practice.

Medication Queries

Please get in touch with the surgery to raise a query about your medication.

Patients can use option 3 on the telephone between the hours of 10am to 1pm and 3pm to 4pm to speak to someone in the Medicine Management Team. However, this is not for prescription requests.

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, you will be notified when this is due.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

Private Prescriptions

If a patient chooses to pay for private healthcare because their treatment is not available on the NHS or because they do not wish to be treated on the NHS, they are responsible for paying all costs, including tests and the private consultant is responsible for managing every aspect of their healthcare (unless the patient chooses to transfer back to the NHS at a later date to continue treatment).

Emergency Prescriptions

We will issue emergency prescriptions only when it is clinically necessary to do so. In these cases, we will issue sufficient medication for 7 days only.
