Repeat Prescriptions


Due to The COVID-19 Pandemic from the 23rd March 2020, you will not be able to collect any prescriptions directly from the Surgery. During the Pandemic patients are required to nominate a local Pharmacy when requesting their medication. You can sign up with your local pharmacy by contacting them directly or contact the Surgery via telephone and we will update your records. 



Did you know you can order your Repeat Prescription via Online Services? 

The easiest, safest and quickest way to order your Repeat Prescription is online. There is no need to make a phone call or visit us; instead Computer/Laptop, Smartphone, IPad or Tablet users can request their Repeat Prescription anywhere, 24 hours a day, seven days a week - All year round!

You can also arrange to collect your prescription or have it delivered to your home directly from a pharmacy of your choice. (Please Note you will need to contact your chosen pharmacy directly to arrange this service).
