Repeat supplies of tablets or medicines can be obtained without having to see the doctor each time, but the doctor must have agreed to this in advance.
Please order using the computer list provided with each prescription. Repeat requests may be placed in the post box in reception area just inside the entrance door or be sent by post.
If you enclose a S.A.E. we will post your prescription back to you, thereby saving you an unnecessary journey.
Please mark your envelope “Repeat Prescription’
If you have FAX facilities and you wish to order your prescription by fax, our fax number is (01422) 370776
We offer patients the opportunity order medication which has been authorised for repeat by the GP 24 hours a day, from the convenience of their own home. Simply register at reception for these services and use the link at the top of this page once the receptionist has given you the log-in details. Please understand that for security reasons this will only be given in person and you must provide proof of identity.
Electronic Prescription Service
We offer the Electronic Prescription Service, which allows you to choose or "nominate" a pharmacy to get your medicines or appliances from. Your GP then sends your prescription electronically to the place you nominated, this means:
- If you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription, saving time.
- You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.
- You may not have to wait as long as your repeat prescriptions could be prepared before you arrive.

Click here to see a copy of the nomination form which you can print and complete then take to a pharmacy of your choice if you wish.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
