Repeat prescriptions

Order your repeat prescription online by using the NHS App

You may sometimes wish to request a repeat prescription without seeing a GP. Please allow at least 72 hours notice when requesting a prescription.

Requests can be made online or in writing or your chemist can order your prescription for you.

We are unable to accept requests by phone or email.

Written requests must clearly highlight items required along with your name, address and date of birth. These can be posted to the practice (and posted back to you if you provide a stamped self-addressed envelope) or dropped into the prescription box in reception. There is also a secure script box on the gate to the surgery if you need to drop in a request when the surgery is closed.


Most prescriptions are now sent electronically directly to patients’ pharmacies and there is no need to attend surgery to collect a script first. Any paper prescriptions can be collected from our Front Desk during our normal working hours. We have a 72 hour turn around for issuing a prescription and many chemists also request 2-3 days to process a script so please make sure you order yours in good time.

Medication reviews

Should your prescription request be rejected by a GP please make an appointment to discuss this with them, rather than question reception staff who are not qualified to answer your medical queries. Please remember that if you are on any regular medication, or have ongoing health problems you will need to have a review with one of the GPs every six to twelve months.
