Prescriptions

Signing up for Online Prescriptions is the easiest way of ordering your repeat medication. Please click on the sky blue square “Sign up for Online Prescriptions” to register for this service. This is our preferred way of you ordering your medicines. Please make sure that you put the quantity and strength of the medicine in your online request.

Repeat prescription requests can be made by clicking on the purple square “Order your prescriptions” and if you have told us your preferred pharmacy, we will send the authorised prescription straight to them to action.

Repeat prescription requests can also be made by calling our prescription answering service on 01224 558177, please make sure that you put the quantity and strength of the medicine in your phone request or using the repeat order form attached to their previous prescription. Please either hand this in at reception or post it enclosing a stamped addressed envelope (SAE). We are able to keep a stock of your SAEs for future prescriptions.

Did you know that your pharmacy can reorder your repeat prescriptions for you? Just ask at your local branch.

For all requests, completed prescriptions can usually be picked up from the 4th working day, after the request is made, from your preferred pharmacy. We will endeavour to let you know if any problems will restrict our ability to process your prescription on time.

Many pharmacies operate a collection service. Please ask at reception for details.
