Order a prescription
Whichever method you use for ordering a repeat prescription, it takes 2 working days to process. If you need it sooner then please tell reception so they can alert the doctor
How to order your repeat prescription
The easiest way to order a repeat prescription is either via our e-consultation option on our home page, or to register for online services.
Once registered, simply log in to the online portal and visit the medication section. You then tick the prescriptions you want.
If the medication you need is not on the list then use the ‘make a custom request’ section and type your request in the box
You can do this by returning the right-hand half of a previous prescription for the required medications, or by submitting a handwritten request.
Please put this repeat prescription request in the box in the surgery foyer.
You can post your prescription slip or written request to us at the practice.
Please note we are unable to accept any prescription requests by telephone.
Instead of issuing a green hand signed paper prescription, the doctor will now send the prescription electronically (when possible) to your chosen pharmacy.
This means you don’t have to come back to the surgery to pick up the prescription, but you can go straight to the pharmacy and pick up your medication.
This works even better if you request the medication online as it means you can miss out on two trips to the practice.
How you can nominate your pharmacy:
- Visiting your regular pharmacy and signing up for electronic prescribing.
- Ask the receptionist at the practice to register your chosen pharmacy.
- You can also change your nominated pharmacy through the online portal under the medication section and then click on ‘change pharmacy’. However you cannot make the initial nomination online.

The doctors at the practice regularly review the medication you are taking. They will sometimes call you in for a medication review and this may involve blood tests. It is very important that you attend these appointments, as it keeps you safe whilst taking medication.
