If you require continuous long-term medication, your doctor will authorise you to obtain repeat prescriptions.
Please bring or send your written request for a repeat prescription to the surgery. If you enclose a stamped, self-addressed envelope we will return your prescription to you.
You can also register for online ordering of repeat prescriptions.

Requests for routine repeat prescriptions that are received at the practice before noon will be available for collection within 48 hours (Monday to Friday).
If you have nominated a pharmacy to dispense your repeat medication, the Electronic Prescribing Service will send it there automatically. This will include any repeat medication as well as one-off prescriptions.
We do not accept prescription requests over the telephone unless in exceptional circumstances.
Electronic Prescribing Service
With EPS Patients are able to order prescriptions in the usual way but collect their medication straight from the Pharmacy without having to collect the green paper prescription. The prescription is sent electronically.
For patients to use this service they will need to nominate (choose) a pharmacy where they would like the prescription to be sent to. This can be any pharmacy so long as they are ready for EPS (98% are). To nominate the patient will need to tell the receptionist and talk to the pharmacy concerned.
If you have arranged for a Pharmacy to collect your prescription on your behalf, please ensure that the name of the Pharmacy is clearly printed on the request slip.
From time to time your Doctor will wish to review your condition and your on-going medication. You may be advised that your authorised repeats have been exhausted and asked to make an appointment before your next order. You may be asked to have a blood test, blood pressure check or to attend a Nurse-led clinic.
Changes to Medication
From time to time your medication may change and you will be given written advice. Changes to medication may be made due to safety guidelines, recommended dosage, price changes or interactions with other medications.
