Repeat Prescriptions

 

Changes due to Coronavirus:

 

Please allow 7-10 working days from ordering your prescription to collecting it from your chosen pharmacy.

 

We issue prescriptions for over 15,000 medicines every month. We need to ensure they are processed by the doctor and pharmacist who know you best. Collecting your prescription from the pharmacy means you can ask them medication related questions and gives our reception staff time to answer phones and assist with queries.

 

How to order:

 

Online - via the link at the top of this page.
We require proof of ID and residency when registering for this service. If any items are "unauthorised" enter them in the free text box at the bottom of the ordering screen.

 

Contact us - If you can't register online you can fill in our contact form. Remember to tell us what medication you need and which pharmacy you would like it sent to.

Medication Reviews

If you are on you regular medication, you will get a reminder on your repeat slip once a year to book a telephone or face-to-face review. At the moment, all reviews are being managed by telephone.

Minor Ailments Scheme

 

Our local pharmacists can give you advice about minor ailments. This includes cough/cold remedies, painkillers, treatment for rashes, lice, scabies, indigestion, hay fever and anti-allergic remedies.

 

We work closely with our pharmacist colleagues and they ask advice from us if you have symptoms that they can’t treat.
