How do I order a repeat prescription?

If you take medication regularly for a well controlled condition and have a monthly repeat prescription, you may have your prescription issued without seeing the doctor, within certain time limits.

Please note that it takes 3 working days to process your prescription request.

The following methods can be used to re-order your medication:

    • Online
      You can order your repeat medication online by registering with the NHS App  and using the online prescription service.
    • In Person
      Attached to your paper prescription is a list of your usual medication. When you need a further prescription this acts as your re-order form which should be posted in our prescription letterbox.
