How Do I Order My Repeat Prescription?

To avoid errors in medications, it is not possible for our reception staff to take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.

Please allow 2 working days from requesting your prescription to collecting it from the practice or pharmacy of your choice.

Repeat Dispensing

If you receive the same repeat medication each month you may be able to use the repeat dispensing service.

This means you can collect your medication directly from the pharmacy without having to request it from the surgery or the pharmacy for up to 12 months.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to consult with a pharmacist, a doctor or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications. The notification date should appear on your repeat slip.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions. If you have been advised by the surgery that your medication review is due, you will need to fill out our Medication Review Form.

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is a NHS service that allows us to send your prescription(s) directly to your chosen pharmacy. This paper-free prescription service means that you do not have to come into the surgery to collect your prescription.

We encourage all patients to register for this free service. You can register for electronic prescribing by completing our EPS registration Form.
