How to order a repeat prescription
Repeat prescriptions have to be approved by the doctor. You can get them from reception by giving two working days' notice.
You can order your repeat medication through the following methods:
- using Patient Access
- via the NHS App
- by filling out our online form
- Use the tear-off slip to re-order by post.
- Fill in a prescription request slip which you can get from the reception.
- Send a stamped addressed envelope for the postal request. Please allow longer for these to be returned you.
- Make an appointment with the Doctor (or Nurse if appropriate) when your review is indicated.
- If you run short of medication unexpectedly, your regular Pharmacist may be able to help you pending a repeat prescription being ordered in the normal way.
Prescriptions can be delivered direct to Boots, Rowlands, Marston or Northway Pharmacy, or Sainsbury’s at Heyford Hill.
Please note we cannot take prescription requests over the phone
Help Us to Help You
- Please only order what you need.
- Please order all your repeat items once in one go and not scattered over the month. This saves your time and ours.
- Please tell us if the quantity of some of your medicines are out of synch with the rest so as we can synchronise them.
- Please tell us when you stop medication so we can remove it from your repeat prescription.
- Please tell us if you are taking a different dose to that stated so as we can amend it.
Patients on repeat medication will have their medication reviewed at least once a year and may be asked to make an appointment with the GP or Practice Nurse. If you need to make an appointment notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for regular prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. Patients requesting acute items (those not on regular repeat) may have to wait longer. Patients using the postal service should allow longer.
You can arrange to have your medication delivered to your home by your local chemist. Please ask your pharmacist about this service.
