Ordering repeat prescriptions
The easiest ways to order repeat prescriptions are:
- using your NHS account (through the NHS website or in the NHS App)
- using the GP online system: Patient Access
These accounts show you all your repeat medicine and dosage and you can choose the ones you need.
You can also:
- bring the paper form to the surgery, Monday to Friday from 8:00am to 6.30pm
- by email – please email your request to [email protected]
We are able to provide proxy access if requested. There is more information on this here.
Non-urgent advice: Patient Notice
Please give us a full 72 hours notice (THREE full working days) for processing and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
We are now able to send almost all of your prescription directly to a Pharmacy; this is called the Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS) Please make your chosen Pharmacy clear when you request your prescription.
See more details here EPS on the NHS website.
Most pharmacies, if requested, will collect and make up your prescription ready for collection – please check with your pharmacist.
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 and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
You can find information concerning our Prescription Fees here.
As qualified healthcare professionals, pharmacists can offer advice on minor illnesses such as:
- sore throats
- tummy trouble
- aches and pains
They can also advise on medicine that you can buy without a prescription.
Many pharmacies are open until late and at weekends. You do not need an appointment.
Most pharmacies have a private consultation room where you can discuss issues with pharmacy staff without being overheard.
