Repeat prescriptions


If you are on regular medication you can make a repeat prescription request at the surgery, in writing, or online via SystmOnline.

You may also submit your request via our prescription request email – [email protected]. Please ensure you state your name, DOB and full medication information.

We regret that we cannot take repeat prescription requests over the telephone.

Please do not order medication that you no longer use or do not need as this leads to an enormous amount of waste

If there are items on your repeat prescription list that you no longer use, please let us know
We do our best to have your prescription ready within 72 hours, but occasionally there are some unavoidable further delays.

In some circumstances the local pharmacists may be able to collect your prescription. Please ask your pharmacist for details

Medication can be dangerous in the wrong hands and it is each person’s responsibility to look after their medication carefully and to keep the drugs in a safe place.

We will look carefully at requests for extra medication and may want to question you as to why you need extra supplies

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, clinical pharmacist, nurse practitioner 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.
