How to order a repeat prescription

We do not accept requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.

We require two working days to process your request. This is to allow time for prescriptions to be reviewed, issued, checked and signed.

If you wish your prescription to be posted to you then please enclose a stamped addressed envelope.

If you use an online electronic EPS service to order your prescription, it will go direct to your nominated pharmacy for you to collect, you do not need a paper prescription when you collect it.

The pharmacy can also collect your prescription from the surgery, but only if you have ordered it yourself from the surgery – the pharmacy can’t order it from the surgery.

From time to time the doctor will need to review your medication. This will initially be in your absence. The doctor will then decide whether you need to carry out a particular action before you can continue with this medication. This action may be in the form of seeing a doctor for a review, to submit an online form; to see the nurse for a blood pressure check, asthma review, to have a blood test etc. You will normally be issued a month’s prescription to give you time to carry out this action.
