Ordering your prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions

The easiest ways to order repeat prescriptions is:

  • using your NHS account (through the NHS website or in the NHS App)
  • dropping your repeat slip off at the Surgery.

These will show your repeat medicine and dosage and you can choose the ones you need.

For those patients who use Patient Access please use their website.

Acute Medications

These medications are not on repeat, as they are usually for short-term use, or require extra monitoring. You cannot order these through the NHS App or Patient Access.

Where possible, patients are encouraged to order online, via our PATCHs page



Dispensary opening times: 8am to 1pm and 3pm to 6:30pm from Monday to Friday

We dispense drugs to all our patients who live more than one mile from any chemist.

Please order all your repeat prescriptions together once a month. The Dispenser will help you to organise this.

Please also ensure that you order in sufficient time so that you do not run out (at least one week before you finish your tablets). 

You must give at least 5 working days notice.


For patients who live within one mile of chemist, we can send prescriptions electronically to your norminated Pharmacy.

Questions about your prescription

If you have questions about your medicine, your local community pharmacists can usually answer these. They can also answer questions on medicines you can buy without a prescription.

The NHS website has information on how your medicine works, how and when to take it, possible side effects and answers to your common questions.


Medication reviews

If you have a repeat prescription, we may ask you to come in for a regular review. We will be in touch when you need to come in for a review.

Delivery Service

We provide a delivery service to patients who are housebound and have nobody that can collect on their behalf. If you, or one of your relatives, would benefit from this service, please discuss with one of our dispensers to confirm your eligiblity.

What to do with old medicines

Take it to the pharmacy you got it from or bring it in to the surgery. Do not put it in your household bin or flush it down the toilet.
