Prescriptions


If you are prescribed regular medication, you can re-order items in several different ways.


  • Drop your repeat request slip into the surgery prescription boxes.
  • Ask your selected Pharmacist to order the medicines (only for items on repeat)
  • Request your prescription via the phone. Please note this is for repeat items only. If your medication is no longer on repeat you will need to request the items you want in writing. (which could result in an  appointment.)
  • By post if you enclose a stamped addressed envelope.


Via the Internet   

Before you can do this, you will need to register via a different web site that interacts with our computer system. Please enquire at reception, they will generate you with your unique log in codes. You may be asked for identification before this information is given to you.  See more»

This must be done in person!


PLEASE ORDER YOUR REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS  72 (WORKING) HOURS IN ADVANCE. IF YOU ASK THE PHARMACY TO ORDER FOR YOU IT MAY TAKE LONGER.


Hospital & Private prescriptions

If you have been given a hospital or private prescription we will happily convert it into one of our GP prescriptions. Please note this may take at least 72 hours.

If you need it before then it is recommended that you either collect it from the hospital pharmacy (if a hospital prescription) or pay for it privately (if a private prescription).


Electronic Prescribing

The Medical Centre now uses ‘electronic prescribing’ you still need to order your prescription in the same way however, the GP’s no longer print a physical prescription, it is electronically signed and sent to a pharmacy of your choice.

When you are next in the pharmacy of your choice please ensure you sign a nomination form.


If you would rather collect your prescription form the desk, we will happily still print it out and leave it there for your collection.


Requests for medication not on repeat.

If you wish a prescription for a medication that has not been added to your repeat, please DO NOT ask the pharmacist to arrange this.

You MUST ask for this via the surgery. You can speak to the receptionist or put your request in writing. We will need to know the exact name of the Medication and the reason you require a further prescription
