Repeat Prescriptions

Please order by leaving your request at the surgery you attend, or by post, please send a stamped addressed envelope if you require your prescription by return of post.

We also offer an online service where you can make an appointment with a GP, order repeat medication and also view test results online.

To sign up, all you will need to bring is photo ID to the reception desk and we will print you a username and password off.

There is also a downloadable app called 'SystmOnline' for the online services that is compatible with smartphones.

We do not to take orders for repeat prescriptions over the phone, as this can block the phone lines for people that are in need of an appointment.

If you are housebound then other arrangements can be made in order to receive your medication.

Please allow at least 48 hours for repeat prescriptions


Electronic Prescribing Service

This practice is set up for the electronic prescription service.

This means that for most patients we can send your prescription to your chosen chemist directly saving you having to come down to the surgery.

To get your prescription sent to your chosen pharmacy you will have to ask reception to sign up.
