Repeat Prescriptions


Requests for repeat prescriptions should be written, sent by fax or submitted using our on-line repeat prescriptions facility.

We do not accept requests over the telephone due to the risk of errors.

Non Repeat Prescriptions

If the request is for a medication that is not on your normal repeat list it will need to be authorised by the doctor and this may possibly result in a delay in issuing the prescription. We therefore ask you to give us as much notice as possible of such needs. You may also be asked to make an appointment to see a Doctor to ensure that the appropriate prescription is issued.

If you have been requested by a Consultant or Hospital to see your GP for medication, we will still need your written request or the request to be submitted on-line, in addition to a letter / fax from the Consultant detailing your medication.

Internet Requests

To obtain your personal login details please visit the surgery with some form of photo ID and they will be able to generate your login details for you.

Please allow three working days before collection. If a request is received after 6.30pm then the 3 days will run from the beginning of the next day that the Practice is open.

Written Requests

Written requests should be made using the right hand tear-off portion of your previous prescription with the appropriate items ticked. Otherwise there is a request form available from reception or a written request will be accepted with full details of the items required and your name and date of birth given.

Medication Reviews

You will be asked from time to time to book an appointment with the doctor to review your prescription before another one is issued. The review date is shown on your repeat list.


Please allow three working days before collection.

Nominated Pharmacy

If you wish your prescription to be sent directly to a specified chemist, please give full details of the chemist on the repeat prescription form or request. Many of the local pharmacies will collect your prescription from the surgery and provide a home delivery service (e.g. Kamsons, Boots). Please enquire at your usual Chemist.
