There are various ways in which you can order your repeat prescription.
Please allow 48 hours (two working days) for prescriptions to be processed and signed before collection. Please remember to reorder your medication early when Bank Holidays are coming up.
If you wish your prescription to be posted back to your home please enclose a stamped addressed envelope. If using this method please allow at least one week to allow for postage delays.
You are advised to have your repeat medication reviewed at least every 12 months.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are a new patient to our surgery and you take regular medications then you must be seen by a Doctor for your first prescription.

If you have a repeat prescription, we may ask you to come in for a regular review. Please book a routine appointment for your review.

Self Care – Medication
The NHS spends around £569 million each year on a wide range of medicines. Many of the items within these prescriptions are available ‘over the counter’ meaning that you can buy these items yourself in pharmacies and other outlets, without the need for a prescription from your GP. Normally the price of these over the counter drugs is much much lower than what you would have to pay for a prescription fee. If more patients are able to self medicate simple ailments then patients and the NHS can both save a drastic amount of money.
