The quickest and easiest way to order repeat medication is via the NHS APP or other mobile applications.

  • Check how many days of medication you have left before ordering your medication.
  • Order repeat medication from your GP practice when you have 7 days of medication left.
  • It usually takes the GP practice 2 working days to issue a prescription.
  • Once the pharmacy receives the prescription it can take them 48 hours to prepare it.
  • Remember to only order the medication that’s needed for the month.
  • It’s not necessary to order medication every month for it to stay on repeat prescription.
  • Speak to your pharmacy or GP Practice to organise for the prescription to be sent electronically.
  • Speak to their pharmacy about what services they offer e.g., prescription collection and delivery.
  • Please speak to your GP practice if you are unable to order repeat medication yourself, and don’t have someone else to help.

Repeat Prescriptions

Our repeat prescription service is run by our Medicines Coordinator Linda Evans.

Linda will monitor your prescriptions and may ask you to come in for review by a doctor if this is indicated. Our prescriptions are also monitored for cost effectiveness and there may be changes made to your medicines where this might become an issue.
If you are on medication that the doctor has advised you to continue you can request a repeat prescription in the following way:

  • Drop-in to the Surgery and post your counterfoil into the Prescription Collection Box. Making sure you only TICK the items you require on your prescription counterfoil. If you do not have your counterfoil, you must complete a prescription request slip, available at Reception
  • Email us on:
  • Post in with an S.A.E. attached
  • Ask your Pharmacy about their “Repeat Prescription Collection Service” (Enquire with your usual Pharmacy, if they provide this service).

Due to the high demand of repeat prescription requests, we are unable to process your prescription in less than 2 working days. Therefore, please ensure you leave enough time to order your prescription.

Please post your prescriptions into the box
