Ordering repeat prescriptions

Please order your medication at least 48 hours (2 working days) before you require it. We usually accept requests up to 10 days in advance.

For patients on long-term medication and eligible for repeat prescriptions, there are a number of options available for re-ordering.

  • Online – Use Prescription Ordering Online Form below
  • In person – leave your computerised repeat slip at reception with the required items clearly marked.
  • NHS App 
  • Email – send your request to In the subject heading please type ‘ Repeat Prescription Request‘ followed by your name.

The surgery recommends that you nominate a chemist of your choice to which your prescription can be sent to, electronically. If you have not done this, kindly please do so at your earliest when you order your medication. This will allow to to then proceed directly to your chemist of choice to collect your medication (2 working days after making your request).  You can advise us by email of your preferred/nominated chemist when you place your medication request or state this on the online order form when prompted.

Please note, we are usually unable to accept requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.

Pharmacy services

The new NHS Pharmacy First advanced service launched on 31 January 2024.

The new Pharmacy First Service will enable community pharmacists to complete episodes of care for patients without the need for the patient to visit their general practice. This, alongside expansions to the pharmacy blood pressure checking and contraception services, will save up to 10 million general practice team appointments a year and help patients access quicker and more convenient care, including the supply of appropriate medicines for minor illness.

As part of the new Pharmacy First service, as outlined in the Delivery Plan for Recovering Access to Primary Care, the ‘NHS Community Pharmacist Minor Illness Service’ within Local Services will be replaced with a new ‘Pharmacy First’ referral option on 31st January 2024.

As part of this change, the service is being expanded to include seven new clinical pathways (listed below). Patients suffering with any of these conditions can be treated with an appropriate antibiotic/antiviral medicine at participating community pharmacies.

  • Uncomplicated Urinary Tract Infection
  • Shingles
  • Acute Otitis Media
  • Acute Sinusitis
  • Infected insect bites
  • Impetigo
  • Acute Sore Throat
