Ordering repeat prescriptions

From Monday 1st April 2024, we will only accept paper/written prescription requests in the following ways:

  • Your repeat prescription form that’s included with your green prescription token (FP10). These forms will have your name, date of birth and address printed on them, and have a list of your repeat medicines. You only need to tick what you would like to request, and drop this into our letterbox.
  • Repeat prescription request forms that have come from the surgery. We provide these at our front desk. If you would like an online copy of this form to print and bring to the surgery, please click here.

If you would like to sign up for the online service, or if you’re not sure if you’ve done this already, please contact the surgery by coming in and speaking to a member of staff at our front desk, or calling 01626 334411.

You can make a request for repeat medicines by calling the surgery if you are over 75 years of age, or if you’re housebound (unable to leave your house at all).
