Repeat prescriptions can be ordered in a number of ways:
- Online through the NHS app or the patient access website/app.
- At the surgery, either by using the attached counterfoil on your prescription and ticking the items required or by completing a request slip at the prescription desk.
- By post (please include a stamped addressed envelope if you want your prescription to be posted back to you).
Repeat prescriptions will be ready 72 working hours after ordering.
Please ensure that you order your medication in time and wherever possible try to order all medications you take regularly at the same time.
We are trying to make ordering prescriptions easier for everyone. In doing this, we may ask you to choose a pharmacy to send your prescriptions electronically. This would save you time in having to travel between the practice and your chosen pharmacy.
We find this the most safe and efficient way to issue your prescriptions.
