Repeat prescriptions are medications which appear on the reverse of your prescription which your doctor would like you to continue on a regular basis.
The Practice provides a Repeat Prescription Service, this service enables those patients who have regular medications to obtain their repeat prescriptions which are sent electronically to the local pharmacies.
Non-urgent advice: Prescriptions for over-the-counter medicines
You can buy over-the-counter medicines in pharmacies, supermarkets and some high street shops.
GPs, nurses and pharmacists will not generally give you a prescription for over-the-counter medicines.
Your local pharmacy offers help and clinical advice to manage minor health concerns. If your symptoms suggest it’s more serious, they will help you get the care you need.
Please help the NHS to use resources sensibly.
This advice is in line with national guidance from NHS England.
How to Request a Repeat Prescription
Repeat prescriptions may be ordered in several ways: (Please note we cannot take prescription requests over the phone)
You can order your repeat prescriptions via NHS App or Patient Access on a computer, iPad or a phone app. The surgery will give you a log in and password to access this. This is the quickest and most accurate way to request and the information goes straight to your GP record.
Fill in a prescription request form or underline the items needed on the tear-off side of your prescription and drop it into the surgery, or post it in the prescription box on the outside of the building by the front door. Please do not order any medications you do not need.
If a stamped addressed envelope is supplied, your prescription can be returned via Royal Mail. Find our postal address.
Non-urgent advice: Please Note
Please allow a minimum of 2 working days for your prescription to be processed and be aware that it could take longer if your medication review date is overdue and/or there is a query relating to your request. Repeat medications are reviewed at regular intervals, this helps us review your continuing need for the medication as well as enabling us to monitor the effects of medication by checking blood tests, blood pressure etc.
