Repeat Prescriptions

If you are on repeat medications you will be given a prescription slip with a tear-off counterfoil. The counterfoil lists all your medications on repeat. Just tick the items you require and hand it in at reception or leave it in the request box in the waiting area. If there are any medications you no longer take, then please let us know so that we can amend your counterfoil accordingly.

Alternatively you can order online via the link at the top of this page. New users are required to complete a simple registration.

Please allow 48 (working) hours for your prescription to be prepared. Remember prescriptions will not be issued before they are due. Please note that items on repeat might take longer than 48 hours to issue.

Postal Requests

If you send your request with a stamped addressed envelope we will return the prescription to you. It would be advisable to order at least 5 days in advance due to potential postal delays.

Email Your Medication Request 

If you would like to email your medication request to us, please email

Please note you must include your name, address ,date of birth, contract number and what medication is required,  when you email your medication request.



Question about your prescriptions

If you have questions about your medicine, your local pharmacists can answer these. They can also answer questions on medicines you can buy without a prescription.

The NHS website has information on how your medicine works, how and when to take it, possible side effects and answers to your common questions.

If you would like to speak to someone at the GP surgery about your prescription:

  • Send us a non-urgent query via contact us on line or
  • Phone us after 10:30am

Nominating a pharmacy

You will need to choose a pharmacy to collect your prescription from. We call this nominating a pharmacy.

You can change your nominated pharmacy at any time:

  • By using the NHS app
  • At your GP practice
  • At any pharmacy that accepts repeat prescriptions

Electronic Prescribing Service

This practice is set up for the electronic prescription service.

This means that for most patients we can send your prescription to your chosen chemist directly saving you having to come down to the surgery.

To get your prescription sent to your chosen pharmacy you will have to ask reception to sign up.

Prescription Deliveries

If you have your prescription delivered, please mark clearly on your counterfoil or if you order via the Internet or Digital TV type in the name of the pharmacy you wish to use. Most pharmacies in the area offer a home delivery service. Please remember that once your prescription has been collected from the surgery, it is not our responsibility to contact the pharmacy if there is a delay in delivery.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
