Pharmacies are not able to order prescriptions
Since 5th June 2017 pharmacies are no longer able to order prescriptions for patients. For more information on why this is happening please click here to view an electronic copy of our leaflet on the matter.
To order prescriptions in the future then you will have to order them at the desk or you can order them ONLINE; to set up online ordering please contact reception and they can print off your username, password & instructions.
There are several ways to order your repeat prescription, please note that you can only request medicines that your doctor as advised you to take on a regular basis. If you are unsure you can check by looking at the tick box on the right hand side of your prescription, please note that there are certain medications that you will need an appointment for e.g. the contraceptive pill and medications that need a regular review. These are the methods you may use to order your repeat medications:
- In person at the Surgery
- Using the NHS App where you can order repeat prescriptions from your phone or tablet
- Following the link at the top of this page to the online form
- Chemists in your area may operate a prescription pick-up and delivery services however they are unable to order the medication for you unless authorised by the Doctor to do so, you can look on the NHS web site for information
- EPS is a more convenient way to get your prescription. From 15th September we will be starting to send patients prescriptions electronically to the pharmacy. Please ask your local pharmacist for more information or pick up a leaflet from reception to find out how this could save you time.
- By post including a stamped addressed envelope
Your prescription will be available for collection within 48 hours (not including weekends/bank holidays). We are not able to take repeat prescriptions over the telephone.
