Repeat Prescriptions

You can order a repeat prescription in the following ways:

We also operate an automatic ordering service for some patients. Please ask the dispenser if you are suitable for this service.

Please avoid collecting your prescriptions outside opening hours.

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed, and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

Text Service

We now offer a texting service where we can text information regarding your prescriptions, including:

  • When your prescription is ready to collect
  • If there is a problem with your repeat order
  • When your prescription has been sent to the chemist and any other useful information

There is a prescription collection service operated by three local pharmacies if we do not dispense your medication

Unused Medicines

Please do not store unused medicines, they can be returned to the surgery for safe disposal.

Medication Reviews

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.

EPS – Electronic Prescription Service

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is a NHS service that allows us to send your prescription(s) directly to your chosen pharmacy. This paper-free prescription service means that you do not have to come into the surgery to collect your prescription. We encourage all patients to register for this free service.

You can register for electronic prescribing by completing our online EPS registration form.
