Repeat prescriptions can be requested by telephone. Alternatively they can be requested by returning the tear-off order slip from a previous prescription and indicating which items you need either by
- Handing your request in at the surgery
- Posting your request to us with a stamped self-addressed envelope
- Faxing your tear off slip to us.
We now have the facility to receive online ordering of prescriptions. Click on the link at the top of this page to register and use this facility.
Please let us know which pharmacy you would like to collect your electronic prescriptions from. For more information about this time-saving service see our Electronic Prescriptions page.
Nominating a pharmacy for electronic prescriptions
You no longer need to collect a paper prescription to take to a pharmacy as we operate the NHS Electronic Prescription Service. Simply 'nominate' the pharmacy of your choice and it will be sent directly to the chemist, once the GP has signed it, saving you time and effort. To nominate a pharmacy you can provide us with their details, or you can walk into any pharmacy and instruct them to nominate themselves as the place to which you would like to collect your medication (this can be especially useful when you are away from home). You can change your nomination whenever you like.
Please note we require 24 hours (except weekends) from receipt of your request to process your prescription. Please allow two additional days if posting. Please indicate clearly what you wish us to do with your prescription once it has been authorised.

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, 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.
