The NHS App is the quickest way to order repeat medication. The App displays the medication you are currently on and gives you access to your medical records too. You can also use Patient Access to order repeat medication.

If you have not yet registered to order your prescription online, or would prefer not to, you can also make a request in any of the following ways:
Regardless of the method, please allow 3 days (excluding weekends and Bank Holidays) for your repeat prescription request to be processed. We cannot accept repeat prescription requests over the telephone.
Please do not request your prescription if your prescription currently has more than 2 weeks remaining. Your request will be rejected. This follows national guidance to allow supply chains to restock and to ensure everyone has adequate supplies of their medication.

If we dispense for you, then your medication can be collected from our dispensary or from reception.
Our dispensing patients are patients who live more than 1.6 km (1 mile) from a chemist.
If you require medication urgently outside surgery hours please speak to a pharmacist at one of the pharmacies in our area. Please click here to find a local pharmacy: Find a pharmacy.
It is good practice for us to review patients who are taking regular medication at least once a year. As the prescribers we have a responsibility to make sure that your medication is still working and that it is not causing side effects. The review date is printed on the right hand side of the prescription form. Please call our reception team to book your appointment, 0118 972 2188. It would help us if patients could book in for a medication review at least once a year.
If patients request medication after the review date without having been seen by a doctor, we will send them a reminder. If they still do not attend after several reminders we will have to stop issuing prescriptions.
Please note that medication reviews can be done by telephone.
