Repeat prescriptions

To order a repeat prescription

You can order and track repeat prescriptions through your NHS account on the NHS website or in the NHS App.

For any prescription queries, or where you are unable to order through your NHS account please email for those registered at Little Common or for those registered at Old Town.

You can also use the repeat ordering slip on your previous prescription and leave it at the surgery or post it to us.

Your prescription will normally be ready for collection 3 days after your order has been received. Remember you can use your NHS account to track your prescription.

Only order a repeat prescription if you have less than 7 days of medication remaining.

We can also post your prescription to you if you provide us with a stamped, addressed envelope.

Find out more about registering for online services.


Electronic prescriptions service (EPS)

If you get regular prescriptions or are already using a prescription collection service (where a pharmacy collects prescriptions from your GP practice for you) then choosing a pharmacy to dispense all your prescriptions may save you time by avoiding unnecessary trips to your GP.

You will still order your repeat prescriptions in the same way as you do now, but your prescriptions will be sent electronically to the pharmacy or dispenser of your choice.

You will not have to collect a paper repeat prescription from your GP practice.

You can nominate a pharmacy, or change your nominated pharmacy, using your NHS account on the NHS website or NHS App.

The NHS website contains further information on EPS.


Medication reviews

We have a duty to review your health and medicines regularly. We will let you know if you need to make an appointment for a medication review with either a practice nurse or your doctor.

If you need urgent advice about your medication outside our surgery hours, please call NHS 111.


NHS prescription charges and exemptions

The NHS website provides information on prescription charges and exemption criteria.
