Repeat Prescriptions

There are several ways to order your repeat prescription, please note that you can only request medicines that your doctor as advised you to take on a regular basis. If you are unsure you can check by looking at the tick box on the right hand side of your prescription, please note that there are certain medications that you will need an appointment for e.g. the contraceptive pill and medications that need a regular review.

Other methods you may use to order your repeat medications include:

  • In person at the Surgery
  • Ordering online by clicking here
  • Chemists in your area may operate a prescription pick-up and delivery services however they are unable to order the medication for you unless authorised by the Doctor to do so, you can look on the NHS web site for information.
  • All prescriptions now get sent to your nominated pharmacy via EPS (Electronic Prescription Service). This means you can collect your medication straight from the pharmacy rather than coming into the surgery first for your prescription slip.
  • By post including a stamped addressed envelope

Your prescription will be available for collection within 48 hours (not including weekends/bank holidays). We are not able to take repeat prescriptions over the telephone.
