Our policy for repeat prescriptions is as follows:
- Patients must provide the name and strength of the medication.
- GP appointments are not required for repeat prescriptions unless they have requested it.
- Repeat prescription requests take 48 hours (2 working days) to process.
Repeat Prescriptions can be requested as follows:
Order online through Patient Access via the link at the top of this page. New users need to contact the surgery who will email a registration letter to you.
Please note: if the practice has asked you to come for a blood test or review before you next prescription request, and you do not, your medication quantity may be reduced.
Electronic Prescribing Service
This practice is set up for the electronic prescription service. This means all prescriptions are signed electronically rather than printed and signed.
This means that for most patients we can send your prescription to your chosen (nominated) NHS pharmacy directly. You can then go directly to your pharmacy to collect your medication.
If you do not have a nominated pharmacy, you can collect your medication at any NHS pharmacy of your choice. You may be asked to provide your NHS number or the prescription code, which the practice can provide to you.
To get your prescription sent to your chosen pharmacy you will have to ask reception or your preferred pharmacy to sign up.

All our prescriptions are sent directly to your nominated pharmacy.
Housebound patients may have prescriptions forwarded to a chemist and/or delivery of medication where appropriate.
Prescription requests take 2 working days to process. Please ensure you request your prescription at least 3 working days before you run out.
