Repeat prescriptions are medications that appear on the reverse of your prescription which your doctor would like you to continue on a regular basis.

Repeat Prescriptions

For repeat prescriptions please give us 72 hours notice (3 working days). To avoid error, we do not take requests by telephone.

The easiest, safest, and quickest way to order your repeat prescription is Patient Access or via the NHS App. There is no need to make a phone call or visit us; instead computer, smartphone or tablet users can request repeat prescriptions from anywhere in the UK – 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can also check what medication you should be taking and when.

How to Request a Repeat Prescription

Repeat prescriptions may be ordered in several ways:


You can order your repeat prescriptions via Patient Access on a computer, iPad or a phone app. The surgery will give you a log in and password to access this.

You will need to be signed up for our online services in order to request your repeat prescription this way.

In Person

Fill in a prescription request form or underline the items needed on the tear-off side of your prescription and post in the letter box. Please do not order any medications you do not need.


If a stamped and addressed envelope is supplied, your prescription can be returned via Royal Mail. Find our postal address.
