Ordering Repeat Prescriptions

You can order your repeat prescriptions by:

  • Using the NHS App
  • Using our GP online system via the link at the top of this page
  • Putting the right hand side of your previous prescription (with the items required ticked), into the prescription box located in the waiting room.

You can no longer order repeat prescriptions over the telephone, unless you are housebound.

Your prescription will be available within 48 hours

If you wish the prescription to be posted, please supply a stamped addressed envelope.

What to do with old medicines
