Problems ordering your prescription online?
Use the Patient Access Support Centre before you call us.
Our repeat prescribing is computerised. If you are on regular medication and you wish to receive a further supply, please tick only the items you require on the tear-off computer slip (attached to your last prescription). If you cannot find your repeat slip or were not issued with one, you can put your request in to the surgery in writing with your name, address and item(s) of medication your require.
Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in the following ways:
- In person - drop your repeat slip in at reception with the required items clearly marked.
- By post - send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
- Online - if you are not yet registered to do this, aged over 16 years, have on-line access and would like to order your repeat medication on-line, please contact reception for further information.
Patients can also request in writing for their prescription to be sent to the chemist.
Please note we do not accept requests over the telephone. This is to reduce medication errors.
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
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.
