A repeat prescription is an item or items of medication that the doctor has agreed may be ordered regularly. These items appear on the right hand page of your prescription and can be ordered in the following ways:
- In person – drop your repeat slip in to reception having clearly marked the items required. Tip; a tick is better than a cross as some patients use a cross to indicate the items they don't want!
- By post – send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope and we’ll post it back to you.
- Online – via the link at the top of this page. New users are required to complete a simple registration.
Telephone requests are not accepted unless in exceptional circumstances (i.e. housebound).
If you are unable to get to the surgery to drop off and collect your prescription, there are other options available;
You can make an arrangement with a local pharmacy and they will collect it for you. You can then collect the medication when you are ready. Some pharmacies can arrange for delivery of your medication.

You can have your medication delivered to your home or work address by the NHS mail order pharmacy, Pharmacy2U. Medication can be requested by telephone, internet, or you can receive a reminder. Delivery to any address is free of charge. The helpline is 0845 803 9033.
Please note if the item you wish to order is not on the repeat list it means that the staff will need to pass your request to the doctor to authorise and this may take longer than 3-5 working days.
Not all of your medications are issued as a ‘repeat’. Often drugs are issued ‘acutely’ meaning they are either for one off use, or would require you to discuss further prescriptions with your doctor in order to decide whether it is appropriate for you to continue to use them. Staff are not permitted to issue these items and they should also NOT be requested by an online message.
Certain prescriptions such as oral contraceptives require specific monitoring and will always require a review by your doctor before they are issued.
When collecting your prescription please do not immediately complete your request form for next time and place it straight back in the box. Our computers cannot issue the medication again so soon and your request will not be processed. Please wait until nearer the time and give us at least 5 working days' notice. Thank you.
Please allow three working days for prescriptions to be processed online and remember it is 5 working days for all other requests. Thank you for your understanding.
