Repeat Prescriptions - Changes To Ordering
Patients should allow 7 working days before they run out of medication for repeat prescriptions to be processed and signed and for your pharmacy to dispense your medicines.
We no longer accept paper requests for medication. Patients can order either:
Via the NHS Prescription Ordering Service ( POD)
Telephone the POD team on 01793 683755 Monday - Friday between 9am and 5pm
You can also now order repeat prescriptions online via the link below. Please note, you will need to register for this service. Read more here.

The majority of our patients elect to collect repeat prescription from a local pharmacy including pharmacies within supermarkets. In addition, delivery of repeat medication to housebound patients can be arranged with many pharmacies- please check with your local pharmacy for more information.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a GP, Clinical Pharmacist or Practice Nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification of when this is due will appear on your repeat prescription slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Do not book a routine appointment to order your regular medications as GPs do not have the time available in appointments to do this. Please only use the P.O.D. or Online Services.
