Repeat prescriptions can be ordered in several ways:
- by ticking the required items on the right-hand tear-off side of the computer prescription and leaving it at reception or through the letterbox if the surgery is closed
- by sending the request by post and collecting the prescription from the surgery, or by sending a stamped addressed envelope with your request for posting back to you. Please remember to allow one week for postal requests.
- by sending your request to the surgery and then telephoning your local pharmacy to arrange for them to collect the prescription and deliver the medication, together with your repeat slip for next time.
- Online prescriptions available for repeat prescriptions only - please contact the surgery to apply for on-line services. If you already have access please click on this link Patient access.
Please allow 48 hours (excluding weekends and bank holidays) before collecting the prescription.
Please do not telephone your request. For reasons of safety we do not accept requests by telephone. This frees the telephone system for emergencies and appointments. Many chemists will arrange for the collection and delivery of prescriptions.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor 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.

Please note we need 48 hours as a minimum to process a prescription - therefore only in exceptional circumstances and only for certain medications will an urgent request be accepted.
