Ways of ordering your repeat medication
- By using our online Repeat Prescription Request form
- By using our online services, Patient Services. If you are not registered to use this service, please register by completing the Register for Online Services form
- Using the prescription slip
When ordering your medication please use the form attached to your previous prescription. Tick the items you require and either post or bring the form to the surgery.
Your prescription will be ready for collection after 48 hours (or 2 working days if submitted on a Thursday or Friday).
If you provide a stamped addressed envelope we will post your prescription to you but please allow plenty of time.
Housebound patients can have their prescriptions delivered by a local pharmacy
You may also nominate a preferred pharmacy for your prescriptions to be sent to for collection.
Usually, one month’s supply of your medication will be provided. Larger quantities may be prescribed in exceptional circumstances at the doctor’s discretion.
We are unable to accept repeat prescriptions over the phone.
Repeat prescriptions can now also be arranged through the Electronic Prescriptions Service (EPS). Please ask at reception for details or complete the Register for the Electronic Prescriptions Service form to register online.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, pharmacist, 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.
If you have been advised by the surgery that your medication review is due, please complete the Medication Review form.

You can also find out if you are entitled to free prescriptions on the NHS site.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).
The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
