What is a Repeat Prescription?
A repeat prescription is a medication that your doctor has authorised on your file which can be supplied for a certain period of time on a regular basis without having to see your doctor each time. Repeat prescriptions are normally authorised for a period of 6 to 12 months but this may vary with the type of medicine and at the doctor's discretion.
How to order a repeat prescription?
Please remember that requesting your medication on time is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY!
It takes 48 working hours to process your request. This is to make sure that the prescribing is done SAFELY with accordance with our Prescribing Policy.
*We DO NOT ACCEPT TELEPHONE REQUESTS. This is due to safety reasons.
Would you like to collect your prescription directly from a Pharmacy of your choice?
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.
Ask any pharmacy or your GP practice to add your nomination for you. You don’t need a computer to do this.
