What is a Repeat Prescription?

A repeat prescription is a continuous supply of certain medication that you can routinely order for a set period of time without having to see a doctor.

The doctor will arrange for this medication to be available for you to order for a clinically appropriate length of time and you will then require a review.

You will be advised that you need to have this done when you are coming to the end of your prescription allocation.

This will be advised by using the right-hand side of the prescription.

If you have been advised by the surgery that your medication review is due please complete our form.

You may need to pick up your prescription from the surgery.

How do I order my Repeat Prescription?

Please note that we do not take prescription requests over the phone.

Please plan ahead and allow two working days before collection.

You can order your repeat prescription in the following ways:

  • Online
  • Using the tear-off slip from your previous prescription to re-order your medication, ticking the items you require.
  • Fill in a prescription request form at reception

If you wish your prescription to be posted back to you, please provide a stamped addressed envelope.
