How Do I Order My Repeat Prescription?
We require 2 working days from receipt of a prescription request to be collected by the patient. You can request a prescription:
- Online – Using our prescription requests triage.
- Using the NHS App.
- Requesting a repeat prescription through your local pharmacy order and collect service.
- By postal delivery or hand delivered to our post box.
Patients may not be aware that our practice nurses can undertake the majority of medication reviews. Therefore if you are due a medication review, please contact the surgery to book an appointment with one of our nurses or by completing the Request an appointment with a Nurse or Healthcare Assistant form.
If you need a medication review with a GP, this will be indicated on your prescription when you collect it and a non-urgent appointment can be booked for you.
You will need to speak to your pharmacist to set this up. If you have already signed up for this service you will be able to collect your medication 2 working days after ordering without coming into the practice.
There are some medications that are not yet compatible with this service, please check with your pharmacy. For more information, visit the Electronic Prescription Service page on the NHS Digital website.
You can register for this service by completing the Electronic Prescription Service registration form.
Controlled Drug Prescriptions
Any prescriptions which list a controlled drug will now be recorded as collected electronically.
This is to provide a safer and more effective service, however this process may take a little longer. We thank you for your patience.
View the cost of prescriptions on the “How much is the NHS prescription charge?” page on the NHS website.
You can also find out if you are entitled to free prescriptions by visiting the “Am I entitled to free prescriptions?” page on the NHS website.
