Please order repeat medications through the website or the NHS App.
If you are due a medication review, you will not be able to order repeat medications online. Please book an appointment with a GP to obtain your medication.
Online Access Form
Please give at least 72 hours notice for repeat prescriptions by completing the retained part of your computerised prescription – and then delivering it to the surgery. We are not a dispensing practice and do not accept prescription requests over the telephone or by fax.
We do not accept prescription requests via the chemist unless you are housebound.
Patients will need to bring in their own requests in person or to order online (you will need to register for online access).
You may order online by following the link on this page to the secure form and carrying out the simple one-off registration.
It is possible to avoid a further visit to the surgery by collecting your completed prescription direct from a local Chemist – please ask at reception for further details.
Please note that if you request medication that has not been given to you on a regular basis the doctor may need to see you.

If your illness is greater than 7 days, you will need to see the GP for a sick note. If you have been in hospital, the hospital should produce a sick note for you before you leave.
