Repeat Prescriptions
You can order your prescription online, by telephone or by popping in Monday – Friday.  If ordering by telephone please ensure you have the name of the medication so that the staff can process your request accurately.

We have a dedicated prescription line where patients can order their prescription between the hours of 8:45am and 6:00pm, Monday to Friday.  Please note the prescription line is a voicemail service and we ask that you speak clearly giving your name, address and the medication you require.  Medication not on repeat cannot be requested using the prescription line.  Please contact the surgery if you require medication not on repeat.
