Order a Repeat Prescription

The easiest way to order a repeat prescription or arrange an appointment is via Patient Access. Simply log in to the online portal and select the options you require.

Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Please do not wait until you have no medication left before ordering, as there may be issues obtaining your medication. Always allow at least three working days. This will be longer if you are requesting your medication via post.

If you have any problems please telephone the surgery.

Other Ways to Order

Pharmacy Ordering/Collection Service

Most Pharmacies can order your repeat medication and collect them for you.

Please make sure you ring them at least 7 days before you are due to run out as it may take time for them to process it.

In person

You can do this by returning the right-hand half of a previous prescription for the required medications, or by submitting a handwritten request.

Please put this repeat prescription request in the designated box.

By Phone

Unfortunately we are unable to accept prescriptions over telephone as of 1.9.2019. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

By post

You can post your prescription slip or written request to us at the Practice. You can include a stamped addressed envelope for return by post if you will not be able to pick up your prescription from the surgery.

Most Pharmacies offer a prescription collection service from our Practice.They can also order your medication on your behalf.This saves you time and unnecessary visits to the Practice. Please contact the pharmacy of your choice for more information if you wish to use this service.

Medication reviews

The doctors at the Practice regularly review the medication you are taking. This may involve changes to your tablets, in accordance with current Health Authority policies. Please be reassured that this will not affect your treatment. We may sometimes call you in for a medication review and this may involve blood tests. It is very important that you attend these appointments, as it keeps you safe whilst taking medication.

Non-Repeat Items (Acute Requests)

Non Repeat Prescriptions known as “Acute” prescriptions are medicines that have been issued by the Doctor but not added to your repeat prescription records. This is normally a new medication issued for a trial period and may require a review visit with your Doctor prior to being added onto your repeat prescription records. Some medications are recorded as acute as they require to be closely monitored by the Doctor. You may therefore not always be issued with your requested medication as you may need to consult with your Doctor.

Hospital Requests

When you are discharged from hospital you should normally receive five days supply of medication.

On receipt of your medication requirements, which will be issued to you by the hospital, please bring this to the surgery or post via S.A.E. before your supply of medication has run out.

Hospital requests for change of medication will be checked by the GP first, and if necessary your Doctor will issue you with a Prescription. The Practice will endeavour to issue you with your prescription on that day, but it cannot be issued until your medical details are checked by the Doctor, your prescription should normally be ready by 4pm on that day, or you may be advised to attend the next day.
