Ordering Repeat Prescriptions
You can order your repeat prescriptions by:
- Using the NHS App
- Using our GP online system called Patient Access
- Send a request online via Patchs (Please note this could take 72 hours to be processed)
- Order through your nominated pharmacy
- Bring the repeat order form to the surgery, Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 6.30pm
We do not take repeat prescription requests over the phone
Please allow 48 working hours for prescriptions to be processed and ready for collection.
Collecting your prescription
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. We call this nominating a pharmacy.
You can change your nominated pharmacy at any time:
- By using the NHS app
- At any pharmacy that accepts repeat prescriptions
If you have a repeat prescription, we may ask you to come in for a regular review. We will be in touch when you need to come in for a review.
What to do with old medicines
Take it to the pharmacy you got it from.
Do not put it in your household bin or flush it down the toilet.
Questions about your prescription
If you have questions about your medicine, your local pharmacists can answer these. They can also answer questions on medicines you can buy without a prescription.
If you would like to speak to someone at the GP surgery about your prescription:
- Send us a non-urgent query online via Patchs
- Phone us for advice after 10am on 01706 390243
The NHS website has information on how your medicine works, how and when to take it, possible side effects and answers to your common questions.
As qualified healthcare professionals, pharmacists can offer advice on minor illnesses. If you contact our surgery with any of the conditions listed below we may refer you to a pharmacist via our GP community pharmacist consultation service.
- Sore throats

They can also advise on medicine that you can buy without a prescription.
Many pharmacies are open until late and at weekends. You do not need an appointment.
Most pharmacies have a private consultation room where you can discuss issues with pharmacy staff without being overheard.
