We now offer the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)  

  • If you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you 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 at the pharmacy as there will be time for your repeat prescriptions to be ready before you arrive.  Find out more here

Repeat Prescriptions

Your doctor may decide to give you certain drugs on repeat prescription. These are usually listed on a sheet attached to your prescription. If you require further supplies you may request a repeat prescription online if you have  registered for Online Services (see above). 

Alternatively please leave the repeat prescription form at one of the surgeries, allowing up to three to five working days for the prescription to be processed.  Postal returns of the prescription slip will be made if you enclose a stamped addressed envelope.

Please note that we cannot take requests for repeat prescriptions by telephone, this is to avoid mistakes being made.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, clinical pharmacist 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.

During the Covid pandemic these reviews are often carried out by telephone.


We are a part-dispensing practice, and can dispense your medicines if you live more than a mile from your nearest chemist (as the crow flies). This is an important service for many of our patients, so please use it you are eligible.
