Repeat Prescriptions

If the doctor has agreed for you to have a repeat prescription, you may request repeat medication

  • in writing
  • at reception

  • by post (with a stamped addressed envelope)
  • by fax
  • through your nominated pharmacy
  • using your online access account (NHS App, Patient Access or other providers)

Please note that we DO NOT take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.

Please allow at least 2 working days for us to process your request if you have made your request before 1pm. If you have made your request after 1pm, your request will be processed from the following day.

Ordering your repeat prescription online

With the NHS App, you can order your repeat prescription online at home, work or on the move — wherever you can connect to the internet. Because this is a 24-hour online service you can do this in your own time, day or night, without having to speak to a member of staff.

To use the NHS App, please click the link below and follow the instructions on the website to set up your account. You will need to prove your identity. You should be able to do this in the first instance by following the instructions on the website. If you are unable to do this, you may need to obtain some registration details from us. To request these from us, please fill in our Online Services Access Request Form. Once your request is processed, you will receive a text asking you to attend the practice with your photo ID in order to collect the details you need to complete the set-up of your account.

Electronic Prescription Service

We now use the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which allows us to send your prescription directly to your nominated pharmacy so that you do not have to visit the practice to collect and take to your chemist yourself. The vast majority of our prescription requests are managed in this way.

Please make sure we have your nominated pharmacy on your records.

More information about is available here.

Repeat Dispensing Service

If you are stable on your medications you may be able to pick them up direct from the pharmacy who will receive your prescription on a six monthly basis.
You will still have to have a yearly medication review.
Eligible patients will be informed about this.
