Ordering Prescriptions

 
 

 
Ordering Your Repeat Medication: 
 
Prescriptions can be ordered in the following ways, if your medication has been put on repeat by a doctor:
 
Via the NHS app
Onlinw by following the link on the right side of this page
 
By post - send them to us and provide a stamped addressed envolope if you wish us to post them back to you.
 
Leave a written request in our post or prescription box.
 
Repeat prescription requests received Mon-Fri before 12pm will be ready for collection in 2 working days, over bank holidays this maybe longer so please order well in advance to ensure you do not run out of medication. 
 
To order prescriptions when the practice is closed order online or by post  use the Gp out of hours service or the walkin centre. You may also be able to get some urgent medication from your pharmacy. 
 

 
Most chemists offer a service where they collect your repeat prescription from your surgery & dispense your medication ready for you to collect. Please ask your Pharmacist.  If you have asked for your prescription to go to a pharmacy you must contact them and ask them to collect it from the surgery.
 
At the moment other family members/friends are able to collect your prescriptions on your behalf. If you want this to continue please complete the following form: Consent to Collect Prescriptions
 
If you do not want someone else to be able to collect your prescriptions in the future please tell us and we will put a note on your records that no one but you should be given your prescriptions by the surgery.
 
Occasionally one or more of your medications may be prescribed under a different name from the one you are used to taking. This is because the practice sometimes prescribes by generic (chemical) name rather than brand name. However, you can be assured that these drugs contain exactly the same active ingredients. If in doubt, please ask your Pharmacist.
 

 
Electronic Prescription Service 
 
This new service lets your GP practice send your prescription electronically to the place you choose to get your medication or appliance from – without the need for paper in some cases. This means there is less need for people with repeat prescriptions to call at their GP practice just to collect a prescription form.
Patients can use the NHS App to nominate pharmacies
Patients can now view, set and change their nominated Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) pharmacy using the NHS App. 
Nomination removes the need for patients to collect FP10s from their practice and drop them off at a pharmacy. It also allows them to send their prescriptions to the pharmacy closest to their home or to one that can deliver their medicines.
This new feature does not apply to dispensing appliance contractors or patients registered at dispensing practices. To nominate an online-only pharmacy, patients must register with the pharmacy through their website or contact them directly.
