repeat prescriptions


how to request a repeat prescription

Repeat prescriptions will be issued at the doctor's discretion and are normally for patients on long-term treatment.

Requests for prescriptions can only be made by:

  • calling at the surgery in person
  • Online using SystmOne ordering system
    (you will need to register with the surgery for this service)
    Patients should make arrangements with a pharmacy of their choice should they wish their prescriptions delivered BEFORE they submit their repeat prescription requests.
  • by post
  • through a pharmacy

Electronic Prescription Service

This Practice offers the Electronic Prescription Service, which allows you to choose or 'nominate' a pharmacy to get your medicines or appliances from. Your GP then sends your prescription electronically to the place you nominated. This means:

  • If you collect your repeat prescription from your GP you will not have to visit your GP Practice to pick up your paper prescription, saving time.
  • You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.
  • You may not have to wait as long when you go and collect your prescription from your pharmacy.

We are unable to take telephone requests or to take orders or issue repeats at weekends, public holidays or outside opening hours. Please allow two complete working days before collection.
