Repeat Prescriptions

If you require continuous long-term medication, your doctor will authorise you to obtain repeat prescriptions. 

Please bring or send your written request for a repeat prescription to the surgery.  If you enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope we will return your prescription to you. 

You can also register for online ordering of repeat prescriptions.

If you have already received your username and password, please click on the link below to manage your prescriptions online:




Requests for routine repeat prescriptions that are received at the practice before noon will be available for collection within 48 hours (Monday to Friday).

If you have nominated a pharmacy to dispense your repeat medication, the Electronic Prescribing Service will send it there automatically. This will include any repeat medication as well as one-off prescriptions.

We do not accept prescription requests over the telephone unless in exceptional circumstances.

Electronic Prescribing Service

Prescriptions are sent electronically to the pharmacies. Patients are asked to nominate (choose) a pharmacy where they would like the prescription to be sent to. This can be any pharmacy so long as they are ready for EPS (98% are). To nominate, the patient will need to tell the receptionist and talk to the pharmacy concerned.

Medication Reviews

From time to time, we will need to review your medication to ensure it is still suitable for your condition. When the pre-authorised number of repeats has been exhausted, you will need to make an appointment to speak to a pharmacist or a nurse before your next order. A blood pressure check, a blood test or other checks may be required before the prescription is issued. Patients who do not comply with the requested checks will be contacted 

Changes to Medication

From time to time your medication may change and you will be given advice (communicated via a text message or a letter if you do not have a mobile number recorded).  Changes to medication may be made due to safety guidelines, recommended dosage, price changes or interactions with other medications.
