Repeat Prescriptions


Please follow the guidelines and choose the right option for you.

Please allow us three working days (four working days if you submitted a paper request), to process your prescription request.

Prescriptions are not processed over the weekend.

After a given number of repeats, you will be asked to see or speak to your doctor for a medication review. 

We do not accept repeat prescription requests over the phone or email.

Ordering a Repeat Prescription

When you order a prescription online, you can have it sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice. This is called a nomination.

On paper

We ask patients to avoid submitting paper requests for prescriptions where possible. If you are unable to submit requests online or through your pharmacy please post your paper request through our letterbox. Paper requests for repeat medication need an extra day to be processed, i.e. 4 working days. 

At a local pharmacy

Pharmacy Collection Service

All local pharmacies operate a repeat prescription request and collection service. If you have requested that your prescription be collected by a pharmacy, please contact the pharmacy in the first instance to see if it is available for collection.
