Ordering Repeat Prescriptions
The right hand slip on your prescription shows the authorised repeats available. Please tick and initial each item you require, please do not tick items for which you still have a supply. You can post or deliver the slip to the surgery. If you do not have your repeat slip available, the reception team or dispenser can provide you with a copy.

We do not take repeat prescription requests over the telephone due to strict confidentiality issues, either send in your repeat slip or come to the surgery and place your request in the prescription box. (Black post box at the side door).

Online ordering is also available. Please speak to a receptionist about setting this up. When using online services please check your account regularly for any messages or queries with your prescriptions.
