Repeat Prescriptions Information

The preferred method for accepting requests for repeat prescriptions is online. This has the benefit of being quick and convenient for the patient and helps ensure accuracy. In addition patients can also get access to other elements of their medical records. If you are not already signed up for online access please contact the reception team, who can set this up for you within a few minutes. You can find further details by visiting https://patient.emisaccess.co.uk

Alternatively you can obtain a repeat prescription by the following:-

  • Use the repeat prescription request form (i.e., the green tear off slip on the reverse of your prescription) and place it into the red repeat prescribing box in reception
  • By post
  • By email

Please ensure that the items you require are requested clearly by ticking the appropriate box on the repeat request form, or if you do not have a repeat request form, please ensure that your name, address and the items you require are clearly indicated.

In order to process the large number of requests each day please note that 72 hours’ notice is required. An example of the Schedule for ordering and collection is:-

Day of Ordering Available By The Following Day
Monday Thursday
Tuesday Friday
Wednesday Monday
Thursday Tuesday
Friday Wednesday

Please ensure that prescriptions needed over the weekend are collected before surgery closes on Friday evening.

Due to the high volume of requests received by the practice each day, you should note that you may be asked to call back if you request your prescription earlier than the times indicated above.
