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.
We review any regular medication on a repeat prescription annually and wherever possible the doctor will do this without you having to attend the surgery.
If you have been advised by the surgery that your medication review is due, please complete our Medication Review form.
How do I order my Repeat Prescription?
Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
- Online by completing our online Repeat Prescription Request form
- In person by visiting the surgery
- By post – send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you. You can find the surgery’s address on our contact us page
Please allow 2 working days for your prescription request to be processed.
Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is a NHS service that allows us to send your prescription(s) directly to your chosen pharmacy. This paper-free prescription service means that you do not have to come into the surgery to collect your prescription.
We encourage all patients to register for this free service. You can register for electronic prescribing by completing our online EPS Registration form.
If you have an enquiry about a prescription, you can use our online Prescription Question form to ask the practice a question regarding your medication, such as:
- When you should take it and what to do if you miss a dose
- What the possible side effects are, and what to do if they occur
Alternatively, you can ring our dedicated telephone number on 01827 218444.
Please do not telephone our main number as we will not be able to deal with your enquiry and you will be asked to re-dial the dedicated prescription number instead.
