  • Online - follow the link at the top of this page to complete a simple registration.
  • In person - hand your repeat slip in at reception having clearly marked the items required.
  • By post - send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.

We do not normally take repeat requests over the phone for safety reasons

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

48_hoursPlease allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. Whilst we try to cater for more urgent needs where we can, and will always accommodate medical urgency, please appreciate that we dispense to more than 100 patients per day and need 2 working days to be methodical and avoid mistakes.
