Ordering repeat prescriptions

The quickest and easiest way to order repeat medication is via the NHS APP or other mobile applications.

Other ways to order a repeat of your prescription include the following:

  • You may request a repeat prescription by letter, but always enclose a stamped addressed envelope to ensure the request is processed swiftly.
  • You may also order your prescription at the reception desk.
  • Online via Patient Access.

Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery. Remember that sometimes your doctor may request that you are seen before receiving a further prescription. This is because they need to check that your ongoing medication is working adequately and not causing you any problems.

Please note that we cannot accept prescription requests over the phone.
