PRESCRIBING GUIDELINES: In March 2018, NHS England published guidelines about reducing the prescribing of medicines or treatments that are available to buy over the counter. This means that certain medicines may no longer be prescribed if you can buy them over the counter. Click on Prescriptions from the main menu for details on which medicines can be purchased from a Pharmacy.

Repeat Prescriptionsmulticolour_pills

It is the patient's responsibility to re-order medication when due

Repeat prescriptions can be ordered in a number of ways:

  • In person - drop the computerised half of your prescription with the required item(s) ticked or hand-written request in the red prescription box at reception or the outside letterbox.
  • By post - send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
  • By fax -  to 0208 882 1169
  • Online - Please complete an eConsult form to request medications. Access to eConsult is on the Home page of this website 'Click Here to get started'

For security reasons repeat prescription requests will not be taken over the telephone unless the patient is housebound.

The maximum medication permitted is for a period of no more than 2 months.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

If you request a medication that is not listed on your current medication list, you will need to consult a GP/Pharmacist before it can be processed. This is for optimal management and your safety.
