Re-ordering Repeat Prescriptions

Please check your supplies of medications regularly to ensure you do not run out

Only order those medications you are in current need of replacing

Our prefered way for you to order a repeat prescription is to use the blue Contact Us Online button and raise an admin query.  This will not ask you to log on or register

You can also use the Patient Access or the NHS App via mobile or online at NHS App. To do so you will need to create an account and register. This will bring up details of your medications and can also be used to book appointments on line. Please follow the links above for details of how to register for Patient Access or the NHS App

Alternatively, you can send a letter or the repeat medication side slip request form to the surgery. Remember to enclose a stamped addressed envelope if you require the script to be posted back to you or in person using a repeat medication slip available at the reception desk and posting it in the box in front lobby not at the counter.  Prescritpion requests left in the oustide box will not be processed until the next working day.

Please allow 7 working days for us to process your prescription and ensure it is delivered to the pharmacy of your choice.

Use of our online service is greatest over the weekends. Please allow an extra working day for the Practice to process repeat prescription requests received online on a Monday. 

Local Pharmacies do operate a service for repeat prescriptions - please enquire at the pharmacy for further details.
