Repeat Prescriptions

Please return your repeat prescription slip, having ticked the items you require and your preferred chemist. If you wish the prescription to be posted to you please include a SAE. Unfortunately, our recesptionists are unable to accept prescription requests over the telephone. You need to allow two working days for your request to be processed.

Repeat prescriptions can now be booked online. Please contact the surgery for details.
