Repeat Prescriptions

Patients on regular medication from their GP or hospital clinic do not always need to see the doctor for a repeat of their medication. You will be issued with a computer slip attached to your prescription, detailing your medication.

There are various ways to order your repeat medication:

  • Drop it into the box on the front desk
  • Mail it to us
  • Email to us: [email protected]
  • If you have registered for our online ordering then click on the Emis link below

Please allow 2 working days from receipt for us to produce the repeat prescription and remember to check your prescriptions a bit earlier before long bank holiday weekends. We will send your prescription by post if you include a stamped addressed envelope.

Online Ordering is now available(see below)

Please ask at reception to register for this new service, you will be given your unique Access. You can then click on the link and following the instructions:

TO ENSURE ACCURACY, WE DO NOT ACCEPT TELEPHONED REQUESTS

Your repeat prescription will usually be ready for collection from Reception 24 hours (excluding weekends or bank holidays) after you make your request, HOWEVER it is best to be prepared to give 48 hours notice.

Is your Prescription Review Date Approaching?

Please contact the Surgery to make an appointment for a review a week or two before the review date.
