How to request a Repeat Prescription
Repeat prescriptions may be ordered in several ways:
- You can call the practice to request your prescription
- You can send an email to email@example.com with your prescription
Repeat prescriptions will be ready in 48 working hours from your request. Please note if your prescription request is NOT on your repeat prescription your request will take longer to process and the doctor may wish to speak with you. Delays may also occur if your medication request is different from what your doctor has prescribed for you. Please respect our staff, as it is your responsibility to ensure that your repeat prescription request is ordered in plenty of time.
The prescription will be send electronically to your nominated pharmacy, if you don’t have one we can send you an SMS with your the barcode to pick up your medicine from any pharmacy registered for NHS ETP. This means that you do not have to come to the surgery to collect your prescription.
