Order a Prescription

There are a number of ways to order your medication.

How to order your repeat prescription

Please note that as of 1st December 2021 we will no longer be accepting repeat prescription requests over the phone.


The easiest way to order a repeat prescription is to log into the NHS App.

Simply log in to the NHS App and select the ‘Request Repeat Prescriptions’ option under the ‘Services’ section. You then select the prescriptions you want.

Via the website

You can visit our website homepage and click on ‘Patient Access E-consultations’ or alternatively click here

In person

You can do this by returning the right-hand half of a previous prescription for the required medications, or by submitting a handwritten request.

Please put this repeat prescription request in the box on the reception desk.

By post

You can post your prescription slip or written request to us at the practice. You can include a stamped addressed envelope for return by post if you will not be able to pick up your prescription from the surgery.

Electronic prescribing

Instead of issuing a green hand signed paper prescription, the doctor can now send the prescription electronically to your chosen pharmacist.

This means you don’t have to come back to the surgery to pick up the prescription, but you can go straight to the pharmacist and pick up your medicine.

This works even better if you request the medicine online as it means you can miss out on two trips to the practice.

You can nominate your pharmacy:

  • Visiting your regular pharmacy and signing up for electronic prescribing.
  • Ask the receptionist at the practice to register your chosen pharmacy.
  • You can also change your nominated pharmacy through the online portal under the medication section and then click on ‘change pharmacy’. However you cannot make the initial nomination online.

Medication reviews

The doctors at the practice regularly review the medication you are taking. They will sometimes call you in for a medication review and this may involve blood tests. It is very important that you attend these appointments, as it keeps you safe whilst taking medication.

Whichever method you use for ordering a repeat prescription, it takes 48 hours to process and you will not get a notification that it is ready, please contact your pharmacy 48 hours after you have ordered your medication. If you need it sooner then please tell reception so they can alert the doctor
