Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients on long-term treatment and have to be arranged after consultation with your doctor.
Repeat prescriptions can be ordered in the following ways;
- Online via the link at the top of this page;
- By written request at the Surgery via Reception or if your prescription is on computer, tick the items you require on the tear-off slip;
- By post – please include a stamped addressed envelope if you would like the prescription posted back to you;
- From your local pharmacy via the Electronic Prescription Service.
Please allow three working days before collecting your prescription. To avoid error we cannot take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Electronic Repeat Dispensing
Electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD) makes managing your repeat prescriptions easier. If you are on a regular repeat prescription you may be eligible for eRD. eRD will automatically send your repeat prescription to your pharmacy, removing the need for you to request it from us first. If you would like to sign up to eRD, please let us know.
For more information about how the NHS Electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD) service works. Please click here to watch a short video.
We are collaborating with NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) who is providing NHS numbers for those patients that maybe suitable for electronic repeat dispensing prescriptions. The information is obtained from NHS prescriptions submitted to the NHSBSA. A member of our clinical team will contact these patients soon to explain the benefits of this service.
