Repeat prescriptions

Patients on long term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:

  • Prescriptions will be sent to your nominated pharmacy electronically. Only available for pick up if you have agreed this with a member of our staff.

Please allow 7 days for requests to be processed and ready for collection

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

We also offer the Electronic Prescription Service, which allows you to choose or "nominate" a pharmacy to get your medicines or appliances from. We then send your prescription electronically to the place you nominated.

This means:

  • If you collect your repeat prescriptions 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 as your repeat prescriptions could be prepared before you arrive.

We require 7 days to process your repeat prescription. Repeat prescriptions of regular medication must be asked for, either in writing or online, and may be collected anytime on the third working day following the request.

We will post prescriptions to you only if supplied with an stamped addressed envelope. The tear-off slip attached to computer-prepared prescriptions may be used for re-ordering.

You can arrange for a pharmacy to collect your prescription and some pharmacies will deliver to housebound patients

Medication reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, clinical pharmacist , 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.
