How to Order Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions

You can order your prescriptions online  Alternatively, you can put in a paper request at the surgery, or email us at [email protected]
We do not accept prescription requests over the phone.

Please allow 2 working days from the time of the request to picking up your prescription to allow the surgery team to process your request.

Acute Requests

If you require a medication that is not on your repeat prescription list, you may do so using the online patient access system, or on a paper request in person at the surgery.

Nominated Pharmacy

You can nominate a pharmacy to collect your regular prescriptions from. You can do this by going into your chosen pharmacy and giving them your GP surgery and your details and they can set it up there for you. Alternatively you can ask at reception in surgery and they can set up your chosen pharmacy on your records.

This means when you order your prescription either online or on paper at the surgery, once processed by the GP here at the surgery this will automatically go electronically to your chosen pharmacy. This means you do not need to come back to the surgery to collect your completed prescription. Your prescription will be waiting for you at your chosen pharmacy.
