Repeat prescriptions

Patient access banner

Repeat prescription requests can either be dropped into the surgery during opening hours or requested online by clicking on the Patient Access banner. You will need a password to order your prescription via the patient access link. Please come into reception with a photo ID to get a password and ask any questions about Patient Access.

Once your prescription has been ordered, please allow 48hrs for your prescription to be processed. There may be occasions when the doctors will need to see you before issuing a repeat prescription, we will contact you to let you know of this and arrange a medication review consultation at a time that suits you.

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) allows your prescription to be sent directly by the practice to the nominated pharmacy of your choice then you will be able to collect your medication directly from there without the need to come to the practice unless your GP needs to review your treatment in person. If you have not yet signed up to EPS please speak to a member of staff or your pharmacist for more information as the first step in setting up this system is to ‘nominate a pharmacy’.

A list of local pharmacies offering EPS is available here and in the practice. Find out more about other pharmacies by clicking on NHS choices link below.

If you are an iPhone user, you may wish to consider using Echo.

You can download Echo to order repeat prescriptions and have medications delivered to your door, for free.

By signing up to Echo you will be nominated to one of their community pharmacy partners. Echo is free to download and standard NHS item charges apply. If you are exempt you will not be charged.
