Prescriptions

How to Request a Repeat Prescription

Please use the computer print out that you have been given. If you do not have this, please request your repeat prescription in writing. Please allow 2 working days for the prescription to be prepared. We will post the prescription to you if you enclose a stamped addressed envelope.

We have an arrangement with two local pharmacies who, if requested, will collect prescriptions from  the surgery. The medication can then be collected direct from the pharmacy.

Prescription requests cannot be taken over the phone as serious mistakes can happen.

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

A new way to get your medicines

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescrition to the place you choose to get your medicines from.

What does this mean for you?

  • 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.

To find out more, including if this service is right for you and how to use EPS visit www.hscic.gov.uk/epspatients. Alternatively, ask your pharmacy or your Surgery.
