Repeat prescriptions are medications which appear on the reverse of your prescription. These would be related to a long-term condition, that your doctor has authorised the issue of medication without the need for a consultation. The Doctor will tell you how often you need to have this medication “reviewed”. A review usually takes place every 3 to 12 months. If you have been unable to come in time, please NEVER stop your medicines; let us know the circumstances and we shall issue a prescription to keep you going until a convenient appointment can be arranged.
Please allow 2 working days for completion so it is important to request medication in good time.
How to request a Repeat Prescription
We recommend all our patient register for online access as this will enable you to request prescriptions online on a computer, iPad or smartphone app. Click here to find out how to register.
If you have registered, click below:
Fill in a prescription request form or underline the items needed on the tear-off side of your prescription and drop it into the surgery. Please do not order any medications you do not need. If you do not use the computerised request slip, you must include your full name, date of birth, and address on your request.
Prescriptions can be collected:
Monday – Thursday 9:00am – 2:00pm & 3:00pm – 6:30pm
Friday 9:00am – 6:00pm
Alternatively, we recommend you use the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) whereby prescription orders can be sent to the pharmacy digitally without having to collect a paper script.
If a stamped addressed envelope is supplied, your prescription can be returned via Royal Mail. Find our postal address here.
For safety reasons, we cannot accept telephone requests for prescriptions.
Ask us to help synchronise your medicines so you can request them all in one go.
Certain medicines such as the Contraceptive Pill or HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) can be supplied in 6 month quantities for your convenience but to do this the nurse or doctor may need to see you.
Non-repeat medicines, which you may have only occasionally, can be requested on a medication request form or on-line request but we may ask to see you.
