If you are receiving regular treatment you can obtain your repeat prescription without seeing the doctor. You may, however, be asked to see the doctor on occasion to ensure everything is as it should be.
When ordering repeat prescriptions, please supply the name of the medication required, the dosage and quantity needed. This information can be found on the right-hand side of the printed label on your medication.
Alternatively, you can register with the online Patient Access system to request your repeat prescriptions, as well as book and cancel appointments.
If you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose saving you time.
Please allow 48 hours (two working days) for your prescription to be prepared and allow 24 hours for your chemist to prepare your medication.
Unfortunately, we do not routinely fax prescriptions to any Pharmacy due to concerns relating to data protection and information governance.
