Prescriptions

How do I order my repeat prescription?

  • By using our Repeat Prescription Request form.
  • Requesting a repeat prescription through your local pharmacy order and collect service
  • In writing – A written request should be posted to the practice or hand delivered into the black box by the reception desk. Wherever possible please use the tear off slip provided with the prescription, ticking the items required.

Please note, repeat prescriptions cannot be issued over the telephone. Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed, and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

Electronic prescription service (EPS)

Electronic Prescription Service is a new service that will make it easier and safer for GPs to issue prescriptions and more convenient for patients to collect their medicines. Using EPS means that prescriptions by GPs and other prescribers will be transferred electronically to the pharmacist nominated by the patient. If you wish to register for electronic prescribing, please complete our Register for the Electronic Prescriptions Service form.

The prescriptions will also be sent automatically to the Prescription Pricing Authority.

Medication reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, pharmacist, or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

If you have been advised to complete an online medication review, please complete our Medication Review form.
