Methods of Ordering your Repeat Prescriptions
If you regularly take some type of treatment you will be given a repeat prescription request form. About one week before you need more treatment, please send us your request using one of the methods listed below:
- Via the NHS App - Owned and run by the NHS, the NHS App is the most simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet. Easy to register now so that you can order your normal medications without leaving home. The identity checks we would normally carry out for this will be done through the app.
The NHS App is available now on iOS and Android.
- Online - (If you are already registered for this service). You can view your current repeat medication and order the items you require.
- By repeat slip or on paper - You can now put your request in on paper by dropping it through the letterbox. Please DO NOT come into the surgery to do this
- By telephone - We will accept telephone requests for medication but only if you cannot use the other methods mentioned above.
When will my Prescription be ready?
Please allow two full working days for repeat prescriptions to leave the surgery.
Your nominated pharmacy will need time to make up your prescription after we have issued it. Please allow time for this before you go to collect your medication.
Script Ready By:
Collecting your Prescription
All prescriptions are sent electronically to your nominated pharmacy and will need to be collected from there.
Some local pharmacists will deliver your prescriptions for you but you have to arrange this with them yourself.
We can take no responsibility for any arrangement that you may make with another person to deliver/collect your prescriptions.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see or speak to a doctor, clinical pharmacist, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review their regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. You may also need blood tests to tests to monitor your medication. Failure to have a review could result in the GP stopping or reducing the medication currently being prescribed.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
