Repeat Prescriptions

Please allow 72 hours (or 3 full working days) for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

Repeat prescriptions can be requested in several ways.  Please ensure you state your name, date of birth and specific names of the medications you require.

We are unable to take prescription requests over the phone unless in exceptional circumstances or following prior agreement with your regular GP.
