If you think you may need a prescription medicine, please make an appointment with the doctor or pharmacist. Your local pharmacist is also able to give you advice for non-prescription medication.  


Repeat prescriptions

A repeat prescription is a medication that you need on a regular basis and that your GP has authorised. It can be supplied for a certain period of time on a regular basis without having to see your doctor each time.

They may be requested in several ways

  1. Online - log in to your account and request the items listed on your repeat prescription a few days before they are due.

  2. Via Electronic Repeat Prescribing – speak to the practice nurse at your medication review.  If your medication is unlikely to change, your prescription can automatically be sent to your pharmacy every month.

  3. Via the pharmacy- request what you need from your pharmacy who will then order from the surgery

  4. In writing- put a written  prescription request in the prescription box just inside the surgery  or hand it to the reception

  5. By post – request a prescription in writing and include a stamped addressed envelope and we will post it back to you

Please note

  1. The above applies to items on your repeat prescribing list only. The clinical team will add a medication to this list once you are stable on it and are likely to need it regularly in the future.

  2. Anything that is not on a repeat prescription is likely to need a discussion with a GP or pharmacist before it will be issued to ensure it is clinically appropriate

  3. Because of the volume of prescriptions we process, please allow 2 working days for the prescription to be issued – although we try to process them as quickly as we can
