Repeat prescriptions

You can order a repeat prescription in the following ways:

Unfortunately we cannot accept verbal requests for repeat medication by phone.

Ask your local pharmacy about their repeat medication service

Sign up with your preferred local pharmacy for their repeat medication service. Some pharmacies have their own apps and websites so ask your community pharmacist for help in getting started. You have the option to choose any pharmacy as your regular pharmacy for prescriptions. However you can also choose to have no specific nomination if you wish, your prescriptions will still be available electronically (paperless) to collect at any pharmacy. Many pharmacies can offer a home delivery service.

Paper prescription requests

Please note that from 1 June 2021 we will be encouraging a “paperlight” system for repeat prescription requests.

You can still drop your requests into the Prescriptions Box at your local Surgery but please be aware that it may take longer to process your request depending on collection time indicated on each box.​

Prescription requests will only be accepted 10 days before your prescription is due. Please be aware that repeat prescriptions requested electronically will take up to 3 full working days to process at the Practice. Paper requests are likely to take longer. Please allow additional time for your pharmacy to dispense your medication, ready for collection.

We have a dispensary at our Langford site, please click here for information on opening hours

Medication review

We are keen to ensure that patients with ongoing medical problems are monitored regularly. If the date for your next review with a doctor or nurse has passed you will be asked to make an appointment.

You need to register to use our online repeat prescription ordering service and this is best done in person at the surgery. Please speak to one of our receptionists.
