Repeat Prescriptions

thepillIf you are on regular medication, the list of medications can be viewed via NHS app, my GP app, or Online Access.

Please note: NHS app is NOT the same as NHS Covid-19 app.

Alternatively, a computer generated slip with the list of your medications can be printed at the reception.

You may request repeat prescriptions without seeing your doctor, every 4 to 8 weeks, for up to 6 months (depending on your condition).





Prescriptions cannot be requested by telephone

You may make your request by:

  • Log in to your NHS app, my GP app, or Online Access account to select the items required

  • Via your mobile phone or tablet:

NHS mobile app - Android

NHS mobile app - iOS

my GP mobile app - Android

my GP mobile app - iOS

Online Access mobile app - Android

Online Access mobile app - IOS

When you first set up the account, you may be asked for a code. This code is automatically generated in your records. Please ask GP reception.

If you have lost your Online Access user name or password, please contact our team who will be ready to assist you.

Most prescriptions are sent directly by secure electronic transmission, to the pharmacy of your choice.

Electronic requests and electronic prescriptions are handled personally by your GP. 

It is still possible to print out the "green" paper prescriptions. Please note this will be processed by other members of staff, and therefore subject to slight delay:

  • By hand (and dropped in the box by the reception desk)
  • By post (please enclose a self-addressed envelope)

  • Ask your pharmacist to forward your request. You will need to sign an authorization letter at the pharmacy. It may take extra time to process requests this way.

Please allow 48-hours to act on your request. Please state if you would like your Prescription to go over to your preferred pharmacy, or if you would like to collect it from the surgery.
