Ordering Repeat Prescriptions

The easiest way to order repeat prescriptions are:

Using your NHS account

Using the GP online system

These accounts show all your repeat medicine and you can choose the ones you need.

You can also

  • Email – you can email the surgery on with your request. You MUST include your full name, address and date of birth, along with the names of medication required.
  • fill out a repeat prescription request form
  • come to the surgery Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm and complete a request form


Please do NOT book GP telephone appointments for requesting repeat prescriptions.

Collecting your Prescription

Once your medication request has been processed by ourselves, a prescription will then be sent to your nominated pharmacy for collection.

You can usually collect your prescription from the pharmacy 3 to 5 working days after you have ordered it.

You will need to choose a pharmacy to collect your prescription from. This is called nominating a pharmacy.

You can change your nominated pharmacy at any time:

  • on the app or website where you order repeat prescriptions from
  • at your own GP practice
  • at any pharmacy that accepts repeat prescriptions
