Should you require a repeat prescription or a medical certificate these will be processed within 72 working hours from receipt of written notification. Please be understanding of this especially over the Christmas and New Year period. We regret that request for repeat prescription or medical certificates cannot be taken over the telephone.
E-mail requests for repeat medication are welcomed firstname.lastname@example.org or register to order on-line from this website.
Electronic Prescriptions (EPS Phase 4)
We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically from Wednesday 15th July.
Please ensure that you have nominated a pharmacy that you wish your electronic prescriptions to go to. You can do this by either speaking to us or your chosen pharmacy.
Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.
You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now.
The benefits of EPS are that:
- prescribers can process prescriptions more efficiently and spend less time dealing with prescription queries
- dispensers can reduce use of paper, have improved stock control, and provide a more efficient service to patients
- patients can collect repeat prescriptions from a pharmacy without visiting their GP, and won't have a paper prescription to lose
If you're a patient, you can find more about electronic prescriptions on the NHS.UK website.
