Prescriptions

How to order a repeat prescription

  • Online
  • By hand – Please leave your written request for repeats at reception
  • By post – Fill in the prescription form using the slip issued with your last prescription and post it to the surgery with enclosed stamped and addressed envelope.
  • By arrangement with your pharmacy – but please ensure that only what you require each month is requested rather than building up a stock at home.

Unfortunately, we cannot accept repeat prescription requests over the telephone unless you are housebound or if we have made a prior arrangement.

Collecting your Prescription

Please allow two working days for us to process your prescription request although often if will take less time than this.

Further Information

Requests for repeat prescriptions may be turned down if our records show you should already have adequate supplies, for example if you were given a prescription for the item recently. If you need to get extra supplies early, e.g. if you are going on a long holiday, please include this information when you make the request.
