Ordering repeat prescriptions


You can order prescriptions in a number of ways.

  1. Completing an online request via Klinik.
  2. Using the NHS app.
  3. Patient Access link.
  4. Emailing
  5. Making arrangements with your nominated pharmacy.
  6. Posting a repeat slip or written request into our locked Prescriptions Box on the wall in our foyer, or through the letterbox if outside opening hours.

Some local pharmacies provide a home delivery service - please check with them directly.


Alternatively, you can email: for a repeat prescription.

To make sure we prescribe repeat medicines safely, we cannot process requests over the phone.

If you are unable to use the above online methods and find it difficult to attend the surgery to request in person, please get in touch and we will try to accommodate your requirements.

Nominating a pharmacy

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.

If you order your prescription online:

  • 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.

For more information about nominating a pharmacy, visit the Nominating a Pharmacy page on the NHS website.


How your pharmacy can help

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.
