We can print out a repeat prescription for you.  You can then use this to make an official request using the options listed above.

Please allow 48 working hours for prescriptions to be processed and ready for collection.

Collecting your prescription

You can usually collect your prescription from the pharmacy 3 to 5 working days after you have ordered it.

You will need to choose a pharmacy to collect your prescription from. We call this nominating a pharmacy.

You can change your nominated pharmacy at any time:

  • By using the NHS app
  • At your GP practice
  • At any pharmacy that accepts repeat prescriptions

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.

What to do with old medicines

Take it to the pharmacy you got it from.

Do not put it in your household bin or flush it down the toilet.

If you would like to speak to someone at the GP surgery about your prescription:

  • Send us a non-urgent query via Patchs
