Repeat prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions are available using a number of different methods. You can write or call at the Practice, by telephone using the automated repeat prescription line or via our online services - please ask reception for further details or see information on this website.  


To order by phone, simply contact the Practice on the usual number and follow the simple instructions given.  


The repeat prescription line is open Monday - Friday 8.30am-12.15pm and 2.00pm-4.30pm.  


Prescriptions can also be ordered via email using the link below

Reception staff WILL NOT be able to take prescription requests via the main phone line, please do not ask them to do so.  You will be requested to use one the methods listed above




Prescription collection is via nominated pharmacy only - this means your chemist will collect your prescription from the surgery on your behalf.  If you have not nominated a pharmacy to do this, please speak to reception to have this set up.


Please remember to allow 48hrs between ordering and collection, making allowances for weekends and holidays.


Over the counter medicines

Do you need a prescription?

Some medications are now recommended to be purchased from the pharmacy or other retailers, rather than provided on prescription  

This means that going forward the Practice will no longer be providing certain items on prescription.

Why has the NHS reduced these prescriptions?

Last year the NHS spent around £569 million a year on prescriptions for medicines that can be bought from a pharmacy or supermarket, such as paracetamol

By reducing the amount it spends on OTC medicines, the NHS can give priority to treatments for people with more serious conditions, such as cancer, diabetes and mental health problems

Pharmacy First

Pharmacists can offer advice and treatment for common conditions like sore throat and common colds, recommend treatment and refer patients to other healthcare professionals as appropriate.
