Prescription Requests

We can provide an Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which means you can arrange for your repeat medications to be sent to any pharmacy of your choosing, this could be a local service near your home, or a pharmacy near your place of work. Please speak to them directly and they will arrange it for you.  

Patients on short or long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in the following ways, in each case please ensure you print your First & Last Name and Date of Birth:


  • In person - you can drop your tear-off repeat slip off at reception, or complete a request form, or a hand written note with the required items clearly marked.
  • By post - send us your slip or a letter enclosing a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
  • By Email -
  • Online - please register for 'Patient Access' which gives you access to appointment booking and cancellation, requesting repeat medication, viewing allergies, medications, immunisations, test results and consultations.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor 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.
