If you take medication, please give at least two working days' notice when requesting a repeat prescription. For prescriptions that are collected on your behalf by the local pharmacy please allow four working days when requesting a repeat prescription.
Repeat prescriptions can be ordered in person at the reception desk, put through the letter box when the surgery is closed or posted to the surgery: if you would like your prescription posted back to you please enclose a stamped addressed envelope.
We can also accept requests by fax and email or you can register with Patient Access, which is the on-line facility for ordering your repeat prescriptions.
We are no longer able accept requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone for safety reasons.
Please ensure prescription repeats are requested in a timely fashion ahead of weekends and bank holidays. If you are ordering a prescription early please put a note on your request to inform the surgery, this will avoid delays in your prescription being processed. If you run out of medication please do not use the Out of Hours service this is for emergency/urgent care only.

Electronic Prescribing System (EPS)
We now provide electronic prescribing; whereby patients can nominate a pharmacy for their prescriptions to be sent directly to them. Your record will be updated with the pharmacy details which you provide to us. This means you will not collect a paper prescription from the surgery, your nominated pharmacy will receive a request for your medication electronically and they will dispense your medication.
Please note not all pharmacies are using the electronic system so you must check before nominating a pharmacy.
This service is not compulsory; patients who prefer to collect a paper prescription from reception can still do this.
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.
