Register for Repeat Prescriptions (16 years and older)
If you need regular repeat medication and have had this approved by the doctor, you can ask for a repeat prescription in one of the following ways:
- By ticking the items required on your printed request slip and leaving it at our prescription reception. It is helpful for us if you can also write on the slip how many items you are requesting and sign it.
- By posting it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
- Online via the link at the top of this page. First time users are required to complete a simple one-off registration.
- By email to: email@example.com
- Ordering via your pharmacy. Please go direct to your pharmacy of choice but do leave more time.
Please note we do not accept requests over the telephone.
If you have mislaid the printed slip you can request another from reception.
Repeat prescriptions can be collected in person from the surgery. Note also that some local chemists provide collection and delivery. Please contact the chemist of your choice to arrange for this to happen and inform us of this so that we can update your records.

We are sometimes able to issue prescriptions early; for example, if you are going on holiday. You must indicate the reason for the early request. Failure to do so will result in the prescription not being issued. You will need to re-request it at the appropriate time.
Prescriptions Issued At Hospitals
Any hospital prescription must be dispensed by a hospital pharmacy. Our GPs do not dispense these onto a GP prescription.
Private/NHS Prescription Conversion
The first prescription issued by a private consultant will not be converted to an NHS prescription. If you request your GP to issue a subsequent medicine, as recommended by your private consultant, on an NHS prescription that is not within local prescribing guidelines or is not one of the formulary drug choices, your GP may prescribe a suitable alternative.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. 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.
