Prescriptions

Ordering repeat prescriptions

The best way to order your medication is online via the NHS app. You can download the NHS app free via your app store. Once you are registered you just need to click on ‘Request repeat prescriptions’ and your repeat medication will be available to order. If you have any problems with this, give our reception a call and we will try to help.

You can also order medication by marking what you need from the tear-off repeat slip on your last prescription then posting it in to the red prescriptions box in reception. We can not take prescription requests over the phone.

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
