How to Order a Repeat Prescription

 

BACK TO MAIN INDEX

 

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:

  • via the NHS App
  • using Patient Access
  • by filling out our online form
  • Use the tear-off slip to re-order by post.
  • Request your usual chemist to order it on your behalf 
  • Fill in a prescription request slip which you can get from the reception.
  • Send a stamped addressed envelope for the postal request.  Please allow longer for these to be returned you.
  • Make an appointment with the Doctor (or Nurse if appropriate) when your review is indicated.
  • If you run short of medication unexpectedly, your regular Pharmacist may be able to help you pending a repeat prescription being ordered in the normal way.

Please allow 48hrs before collecting your prescription from reception.

There may be occasions when the doctors will need to see you before issuing a repeat prescription. We will contact you to let you know of this and arrange a medication review consultation at a time that suits you.

If you have a nominated pharmacy, your prescription will be electronically sent to your chosen pharmacy and you will then be able to collect your medication directly from there without the need to come to the practice. If you have not yet signed up to the Electronic Prescribing System (EPS) please speak to a member of staff or your pharmacist for more information.
