How to order a repeat prescription
If the doctor has prescribed regular medication then you can order a repeat prescription. If you are a new patient you will need to speak to the doctor first, so that your prescription can be added to our records.
You can order your repeat medication through the following methods:
- complete the right hand side of your previous prescription
- write out your request on the correct form in reception and post it, or deliver your request to the reception counter
- using Patient Access
- via the NHS App
- by filling out our online form
We regret we are unable to accept requests by telephone as they block the incoming telephones lines.
Your prescription will be ready for collection from reception after 2 working days, unless the doctor needs to see you. We would prefer a week’s notice if possible, this avoids many logistical issues. Make sure you attend for planned reviews with your doctor or nurse as otherwise it may not be possible to issue a repeat prescription.
The surgery is currently a non-dispensing practice but your prescription can be sent direct to a local pharmacyto enable you to collect your medication from there, about three or four days after your initial request. If you wish your prescription to be dispensed elsewhere, or returned to you by post, please provide us with a stamped addressed envelope.
