Repeat prescriptions

Order your repeat prescription online

All patients now have the choice to order repeat prescriptions online, appointments and see their records for allergies and repeat medication. In some circumstances a proxy request can be made on behalf of a patient. There is a strict protocol that any patient making such a request will have to complete a registration form and then make an appointment for either myself or Assistant Practice Manager, Lesley Lancaster to view identification. This has to be in the form of one photographic id and one with a name and address of the person making the request. In some cases a GP can vouch for a patient if the GP knows the patient well.

When a new patient requests to register at our practice the same form of identification must be taken to the registration appointment so that a GP can verify the id.

To use the new on-line functionality you must have registered an interest with the practice.  You will then be given an on-line services form to complete.  This process will also give you access to on-line appointment bookings.  Please contact the practice for details

Patients on long-term medication can still order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:

  • In person – drop your request slip in the prescription box provided, having clearly marked the items required.
  • By Post – send your request in by post.

Some medications may need to be authorised by a GP. If you are informed of this please make allowances as our receptionists cannot make a clinical decision concerning your medication. Please ensure that you have enough medication as last minute requests may not be able to be provided.

Medication reviews

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.

Please allow 48 working hours for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
