Ordering repeat prescriptions

Once agreed with your doctor, you may obtain a repeat prescription by telephoning our repeat prescription line on 01224 860160. 

You can also register at reception to order your medication online, or simply hand in or post a repeat prescription request to reception. The form for this is printed alongside any prescription you receive from your GP. 

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed at the Practice and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. 

Please also keep in mind that the local Pharmacy then needs to process your prescription and get your medication ready and this will take additional time.

Repeat Prescription Requests

Questions about your prescription

If you have questions about your medicine, your local pharmacists can answer these. They can also answer questions on medicines you can buy without a prescription.

The NHS website has information on how your medicine works, how and when to take it, possible side effects and answers to your common questions.

If you would like to speak to someone at the GP surgery about your prescription: Please book an appointment to speak to our practice Pharmacy team.

Medication reviews

If you have a repeat prescription, we may ask you to come in for a regular review. We will be in touch when you need to come in for a review.

What to do with old medicines

Take it to the pharmacy you got it from or bring it in to the surgery. Do not put it in your household bin or flush it down the toilet.
