Ordering Repeat Prescriptions
You can order a repeat prescription in the following ways:
- Online through the prescriptions triage
- By visiting the practice – please use a repeat prescription form
- By post – using a repeat prescription form
- Via your chosen pharmacy
We do not take prescription requests over the phone.
Please allow 2 full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account
Prescriptions cannot be collected outside of our normal opening hours, which are 08:00 to 18:30, Monday to Friday.
Requests for repeat prescriptions should be submitted at least 2 working days before they are needed. Postal requests should be submitted at least 7 working days before they are needed.
It can take longer than this to produce your prescription if there are any queries relating to your request.
Prescription Collection Service
If you take medication on repeat prescriptions you may wish to take advantage of a free service offered by several of the local pharmacies. They will offer to collect prescriptions from the surgery and have the medication ready for collection at an agreed time at their premises. In certain special circumstances they may also be prepared to deliver, such as to the elderly, disabled and housebound.
If you wish to take advantage of this service you can find out which pharmacies participate by phoning your normal pharmacist or asking at reception.
