You can order your repeat prescriptions in various ways:

Onlineorder repeat prescriptions online using Systmonline. You need to register to use our online repeat prescription ordering service and this is best done in person at the surgery. Please speak to one of our receptionists.

NHS App – order your repeat prescriptions via the NHS App


By post – If you post your request to us and want the prescription to be posted back to you please provide a stamped self addressed envelope. If posting please remember to give at least one weeks notice for a first class stamp and longer if using second class.

In person – Hand over your repeat slip at the reception counter during opening hours or post through the letter box if out of hours. If you do not have a repeat slip, we have preprinted request slips for you to complete at the surgery.

Your prescription will be ready for collection 48 hours later.

Electronic Prescriptions Service

Most prescriptions are now processed electronically via the Electronic Prescriptions Service, this is an NHS service which enables your GP to send your prescription directly to your preferred pharmacy. This saves you and your surgery time and avoids unnecessary paper waste.

You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now. Read more about EPS on the NHS website.
