A repeat prescription is for a medication that the doctor has agreed for you to take long term. Please remember medicines prescribed by the doctor should only be taken by the person named on the prescription, and you should not stop taking repeat medication without consulting your doctor first.
Medications which are changed or are no longer needed cannot be returned to the pharmacy for reissue. In order to minimise waste and huge cost to the NHS, please only order what you need; any unwanted medication should be returned to your local pharmacist for destruction.

Electronic Prescribing System (EPS)
We use ‘Electronic Prescribing System’ (EPS) at the practice which enables many of your prescription items to be issued directly to your chosen pharmacy. This can mean you do not have to collect the normal green prescription forms to take to your usual pharmacy; you may go directly to the pharmacy. To set up this facility please ask your regular pharmacy to ‘nominate’ them as your chosen pharmacy or ask at our Reception for further information.
Please remember that your repeat prescriptions can be ordered in a number of ways, including:
Impact of Corvid – 19
The impact of the Corona Virus outbreak has several key implications.
Firstly, please do not stockpile your medication; the Pharmacies are extremely busy but doubling up on orders could mean they do run low on stocks.
Secondly, in order to minimise risks to both patients and staff we are asking that all prescriptions are collected directly from your chosen pharmacy. This means you and other patients are not being exposed to additional risk and neither are our staff. From mid-March we will be holding no prescriptions for collection.
