How to order a repeat prescription
You can get a prescription online. Use our online system to order a repeat prescription. You will need to choose a pharmacy to prepare your prescription and collect your medication from.
When you order a repeat prescription online, you will have to nominate a pharmacy to prepare your prescription and for you to pick it up from.
You can nominate a pharmacy by using the NHS App or logging into the NHS website using a web browser. A high street pharmacy is where you collect your prescriptions in person. If you have chosen an online-only pharmacy, then they will send your prescription in the post.

You will no longer need to collect paper prescriptions from our surgery
Your nominated pharmacy will have your prescriptions ready to collect until you change or remove them.
Pharmacists are qualified healthcare professionals who can help you with minor health concerns. They can offer medical advice and over-the-counter medicines for minor illnesses like coughs, colds, tummy problems and aches and pains.
For symptoms that are more serious, we suggest visiting your GP or nurse. You can book an appointment by going to our Appointments page.
