Repeat prescriptions

Ordering a repeat prescription

If you are on regular medication, your doctor may arrange for you to get a prescription without being seen on each and every occasion. Please note that this service is purely for medication, which the doctor has authorised and CANNOT be used to order any other medication.

PLEASE ALLOW 2 WORKING DAYS FOR PROCESSING OF REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS – Please note that the 2 working days time frame may vary at times of increase demand such as public holidays.


You can request repeat medication through our prescription line by calling the Health Centre switchboard and selecting the Repeat Prescription option (number 3).


We have launched a new online service for ordering repeat medication. Please complete the online patient services form below and hand it in to reception to access this service.
