Ordering repeat prescriptions

The easiest ways to order repeat prescriptions are:

  • Using your NHS account – (through the NHS website or in the NHS App)
  • Using the GP online system – Patient Access
  • Using our Online Form – Select admin query, followed by repeat prescription

These accounts show you all your repeat medicine and dosage and you can choose the ones you need.

You can also:

  • Bring a repeat prescription form to the surgery – Monday to Friday from 8:00am to 6.30pm
  • Post a repeat prescription form to the surgery

    We do not take repeat prescription requests over the phone or email.

    Collecting your prescription

    Your pharmacy may text you when your signed prescription has been received from the surgery, or when your medicine is ready to collect. Alternatively, you can check on the NHS App or Patient Access to make sure your prescription has been signed before visiting your pharmacy to collect this.

    You will need to choose a pharmacy to collect your prescription from. We call this nominating a pharmacy.

    You can change your nominated pharmacy at any time:

    • On the app or website where you order repeat prescriptions
    • At your GP practice
    • At any pharmacy that accepts repeat prescriptions

    Questions about your prescription

    If you have questions about your medicine, your local pharmacists can answer these. They can also answer questions on medicines you can buy without a prescription.

    The NHS website has information on how your medicine works, how and when to take it, possible side effects and answers to your common questions.
