Other Ways to Order Your Prescriptions

  1. By Post:
    Post the tear-off slip indicating the medication you require to the surgery, enclosing a stamped self-addressed envelope. If posting please remember to give at least one weeks notice for a first class stamp and longer if using second class.
  2. In Person:
    Complete a Repeat Prescription request form at reception.
  3. At the Chemist:
    Some of the local chemists also do a collection service for the surgery. Please ask your regular chemist for details.

Due to the possibility of errors, requests for repeat prescriptions will not be taken over the telephone.

Collection Points

Patients can either collect their prescription from the surgery or a chemist of their choice.

In order for prescriptions to be collected from a chemist, patients need to register at their chemist of choice for the 'Prescription Collection Service'. Once the Chemist has agreed to collection on your behalf, Patients then need to instruct the Practice which must be in writing - forms are available from most chemists.

Electronic Prescriptions Service

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from. Find out how this could save you time by downloading our leaflet.

Nomad’ box system

For patients who need several types of medication and sometimes forget what should be taken and when, some chemists operate a 'Nomad' box system. Under the scheme the patient has a weekly box with the drugs pre-sorted into the days and times they should be taken. Ask at reception for more information.
