  • are pregnant 
  • have certain medical conditions 
  • are living in a long-stay residential care home or other long-stay care facility 
  • receive a carer's allowance, or you are the main carer for an elderly or disabled person whose welfare may be at risk if you fall ill 

Repeat Prescriptions

Nice_blue_pillsFor safety reasons, we do not take email or telephone requests for prescriptions, except by prior arrangement from the housebound. A repeat request slip is attached to each prescription.

Please keep this for your next order. Prescriptions will be ready in 2 working days, or can posted back if you enclose a stamped addressed envelope.

We can accept on-line requests for repeat prescriptions through the Online EMIS Access system but you must be signed up for this with a username and password. Please access this service by choosing the box on the home screen.

Please do not let yourself run out of important regular medication.

At intervals, we will ask people on regular medication to make an appointment for a check-up.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications.

Please allow two full working days between requesting and collecting your medication.

Wasted medication

Please only order the drugs that you need, always check before ordering.

If you are not sure what you require or what your medicines are for always ask a Nurse, your GP or a Pharmacist.
