Repeat prescriptions

To order a repeat prescription

Please note if you used an online form on the old website you will now need to use the NHS App or register for online services and use SystmOnline. The old form in no longer an option. This is for patient safety reasons.

  • Use your NHS account (on the NHS website or in the NHS app).
  • Use your Systmonline account (on the Systmonline website).
  • Use the repeat ordering slip on your previous prescription. Leave it at the surgery or post it to us.

Please note we process prescription up until 1pm.

Your prescription will be ready for collection 5 days after your order has been received.

We can also post your prescription to you if you provide us with a stamped, addressed envelope.

Find out more about registering for online services.

Please be aware that as of the 2nd of October 2023, we will no longer be taking prescription requests over the phone for safety reasons.

Electronic prescriptions service (EPS)

If you get regular prescriptions or are already using a prescription collection service (where a pharmacy collects prescriptions from your GP practice for you) then choosing a pharmacy to dispense all your prescriptions may save you time by avoiding unnecessary trips to your GP.

You will still order your repeat prescriptions in the same way as you do now, but your prescriptions will be sent electronically to the pharmacy or dispenser of your choice.

You will not have to collect a paper repeat prescription from your GP practice.

Medication reviews

We have a duty to review your health and medicines regularly. We will let you know if you need to make an appointment for a medication review with either our practice nurses or your doctor.

If you need urgent advice about your medication outside our surgery hours, please call NHS 111.
