Before you call us.
All prescriptions should be requested no more than 7 days in advance and you should allow two full working days before collection (so a repeat request put in on a Friday afternoon will not be ready until Tuesday afternoon).
Ordering your repeat prescriptions
- By Patient Access To register for our online services, bring some ID to the Practice and ask one of our receptionists to print you a PIN letter. Once registered, this is the most accurate and quickest way of requesting repeat prescriptions and booking appointments. If you wish to view your medical record and test results online via Patient Access, please ask for a form at reception (ID required).
- By Email All requests require the name of patient, address, strength and dosage of medication needed. E-mail us here.
- In the Box in the Waiting Room. Tick the item required on the list attached to your prescription.
- At Your Local Pharmacy Arrange through your local pharmacies to order and collect your prescriptions.
- By Post send your request to us with a stamped, self-addressed envelope.
Prescription requests will not be accepted over the telephone.
Most prescriptions can be sent directly to your local pharmacy via the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) - ask at reception
Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) may save you time by avoiding unnecessary trips to your GP. EPS makes it possible for your prescriptions to be sent electronically to the pharmacy or dispenser of your choice. This means you'll no longer have to collect a paper repeat prescription from your GP - instead, you can go straight to your nominated pharmacy to pick up your medicines. Speak to one of our receptionists or your local Pharmacy to sign up for EPS!
You may find that a particular medication you take regularly does not appear on your repeat medication list or on Patient Access - these are known as acute prescriptions. Most commonly, these include certain pain killers, sleeping tablets as well as other medicines that are potentially harmful or addictive. All special and acute requests will be checked by a clinician before being authorised.
Please order acute medication by completing a form at reception or E-mail us here.
We will need to check our records to ensure that acute medication is not being overused. For safety reasons, we will often withhold the issuing of such medicines should they have been issued too recently.
