Repeat Prescriptions

Patients on long-term medication can request a repeat prescription.

 

There are two ways to order your repeat prescription:

  • Click on the link at the top of this page 'Order Your Repeat Prescription Online' to order your prescription through our secure online facility. See further instructions below. 
  • Fill in our 'Repeat Prescription Request' paper form and drop it in to the surgery (or post it to us). Ask for this form at reception or download the form by clicking the section below 'Repeat Prescription Request Form - Download & Print at Home'. 

 

Collection

Repeat prescriptions will be ready for collection after 48 hours. Please inform us if someone other than the patient will be collecting the prescription. Alternatively we are happy to post your prescription to you if you supply us with a stamped addressed envelope. 

Many pharmacies will also organise to pick up your prescription for you. If you would like it be sent directly to a pharmacy, please clearly indicate this on the form/when ordering online.

 

Medication Reviews

All patients on repeat medication must see a doctor or practice nurse at the surgery at least once a year to review their medications.

Ordering a Repeat Prescription

There are three steps involved in ordering a repeat prescription:

  1. Patient Details - please ensure your details are correct.
  2. Required Medication - please carefully fill this in as per the information you would add to the paper form.
  3. Sending Your Request - please select a pharmacy to collect your prescription from if you so wish. You can also set a reminder email for the next time you need to order your repeat prescription and/or send yourself a confirmation email (with no details for privacy) to keep for your records. 

These steps are carried out on each of three tabs in the 'Order a Repeat' section. To move from one step to another do one of the following just click on the appropriate tab.

 

Personal Information

Personal information retained on this system is stored in a secure data centre located in the UK and is treated as confidential. Where appropriate this data is deleted two months after its creation.

By using this form you will be sending information about yourself across the Internet. Whilst every effort is made to keep this information secure, you should be aware that we cannot offer any guarantees of absolute privacy. If this matter concerns you then you should use another method of requesting a repeat prescription.

Know Your Medicines and Keep a List

Knowing what medicines you take and how you take them helps everyone involved to make correct decisions about your care.

Healthcare professionals need to know all of the medicines you are taking, to check that medicines and combinations are effective and safe.

Having an up-to-date, written or printed list of your medicines can help:

  • when you might not be able to remember your medications, for example, at an appointment or in an emergency.
  • reduce the chance of errors.
  • when requesting a repeat prescription from your GP.
