Repeat prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions can be ordered by completing the right-hand section of your previous prescription form and either leaving it at the surgery or sending it to us by post. You can also order repeat prescriptions online.

Repeat prescriptions take up to five working days to process, but are often done sooner. If you require a prescription more urgently please call us.

If you prefer, we can post your prescription back to you (you will need to provide a stamped, addressed envelope).

We are keen to ensure that patients with ongoing medical problems are monitored regularly. If the date for your next review with a doctor or nurse has passed you will be asked to make an appointment.

You need to register to use our online repeat prescription ordering service and this is best done in person at the surgery. Please speak to one of our receptionists.

Electronic Prescription Service

We are pleased to offer The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) to our patients.

This means that we can send your prescription electronically to any chemist of your choice. We can send acute medications, such as antibiotics, as well as repeat medications.  NB: Certain medications such as morphine can not be sent electronically.

It’s very simple, you just need to tell us which chemist you wish to use.

Nominating a Pharmacy

When you order a prescription online, you can have your prescription sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice. This is called a nomination.

Once you nominate a pharmacy:

  • you will no longer need to collect paper prescriptions from your GP surgery
  • your nominated pharmacy will receive your prescriptions until you change or remove your nomination
  • any outstanding prescriptions you have ordered may still arrive at your current nominated pharmacy

You can nominate a high street pharmacy by using the NHS App or logging into the NHS website using a web browser. A high street pharmacy is where you collect your medicines in person. They may also deliver to your home.

Online-only pharmacies send your medicines in the post. To nominate an online-only pharmacy, you must register with the pharmacy through their website or contact them. It’s not possible to nominate an online-only pharmacy in your NHS App.
