NEW! Order your repeat prescriptions online


Ask at the surgery for online access to this new service.  If you are already registered, click on the button below to request your repeat prescriptions.  Please note:  we still require two full working days to process your online prescription requests

How to get a prescription


If you think you need a new prescription please make an appointment to see one of the doctors. Sometimes it is not appropriate for you to have a prescription as there are other ways of sorting out medical problems.


Prescriptions that you have had in the past for conditions such as hay fever may be issued without the need to be seen by the doctor. Please ask the receptionists.


Some minor conditions can be treated with over the counter remedies - please ask your pharmacist.  If you are in receipt of certain benefits, you may be entitled to these free of charge under the Pharmacy First Scheme - ask the pharmacy for details or pick up a leaflet in the practice.



How to get a repeat prescription


There is a tear off sheet with your medication listed on your prescription sheet. Please use this and give us two full working days to process your prescription request.


There will be a review period on your sheet and your doctor may call you in if you have not been seen recently to review. Please see the doctor or nurse (depending on the problem) when your medication review is due.


Repeat prescriptions can be requested by ticking the box on your prescription list, handing the list in and picking up the prescription after two working days.  If you have nominated a pharmacy, the request is transmitted securely from our clinical system to the Pharmacy electronically.  This means that you can pick up your medication from them or have it delivered to your door. 


Contraceptive pill and HRT prescriptions require an appointment with the doctor or nurse on every occasion.
