Ordering repeat prescriptions

There are five ways to order your repeat prescription:

To register for this service, you will need to attend the surgery with some photo ID (driving licence, passport etc). You will be given access details at the time of your visit. Please then register within 2 weeks.

Local Pharmacy
Ask you nominated pharmacy to request your medication for you.

In person
Repeat prescription requests can be left with the reception staff, or in the box at the entrance to the surgery during surgery opening times.

You can request repeat medication using e-consult (click the banner on this page).

The Electronic Prescription Services (EPS)

EPS is an NHS service which gives you the chance to change how you get your prescription from your GP practice. If you collect your repeat prescription from your GP practice you will no longer have to do this. Instead, your GP will send your repeat prescription electronically to the pharmacy you choose, saving you time. This could be a pharmacist near to where you live, work or shop

How can you use EPS?
You need to choose a place for your GP practice to electronically send your prescription to. This is called a nomination. You can chose:

  • A pharmacy.
  • A dispensing appliance contractor (if you use one).
  • Ask your chosen pharmacy which offers EPS to add your nomination for you.

If you haven't already nominated a pharmacy please do so next time you collect a prescription.

Can I change my nomination?
Yes. If at any time you wish to change the pharmacy you collect your medications from, advise your new pharmacy of this and they will update your choice on their system.
