Ordering repeat prescriptions

We require 5-working days notice for repeat prescriptions excluding Saturdays and Sundays. A 28-day supply is issued.

You can order medication in the following ways:

  • NHS Order a Repeat service (using the NHS app or NHS website)
  • Using the "Airmid" app on your smartphone
  • Returning your repeat prescription slip in person or post
  • Leaving us a voicemail message on 01359 253701

We have a computerised prescribing system, and your regular medication is printed on the slip given to you with your repeat medication. 

Collecting your prescription

You can usually collect your prescription from our dispensary or your pharmacy 5 working days after you have ordered it.

We can dispense medication to you at the practice if you live over a mile from your nearest pharmacy. You will need to be registered as a "dispensing" patient.

Otherwise 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:

  • on the app or website where you order repeat prescriptions
  • at your GP practice
  • at any pharmacy that accepts repeat prescriptions

Questions about your prescription

If you have questions about your medicine, your local pharmacists can answer these. They can also answer questions on medicines you can buy without a prescription.

The NHS website has information on how your medicine works, how and when to take it, possible side effects and answers to your common questions.
