Please note Prescription requests will not be accepted by telephone.
Please allow 2 working days for processing your prescription.
There is no need to see a GP every time you need a prescription. Regular medications should be requested using the repeat prescription slip though patients will need to see GPs regularly for monitoring, annual checks for chronic conditions and also for medication reviews.
Always try to use the request slip on the right-hand side of your prescription as this gives the correct medication details and can prevent mistakes. Unfortunately because of the risk of error we cannot accept telephone requests other than in exceptional circumstances or if you are housebound.
Please enclose a SAE if you wish to have a prescription posted to you and allow extra time for your prescription.
Most pharmacies collect prescriptions from us daily. If you would like to collect your prescription directly from the pharmacy please let us know and state from which pharmacy you would like to collect.
Would you like your prescription sent straight to a local chemist for collection?
Please let us know on your repeat prescription slip or on the online form of the chemist of your choice.

NHS prescriptions issued by hospitals are only valid in hospital pharmacies.
Requests for private prescriptions or for NHS hospital prescriptions to be reissued from the practice need to be individually assessed by a practice doctor. This may result in the issuing of an alternative medication. Sometimes we may have to decline requests for re-issuing such prescriptions.
