Repeat Prescriptions

How may I request a repeat prescription?

You can request a repeat prescription for your regularly prescribed medication by the following methods:

  • Using the printed repeat request slip
  • Via our online services
  • Fax (020 8826 4709)
  • Via designated chemist

Repeat Prescriptions are not accepted over the telephone.

Requests made for items not on the ‘Repeat screen’ or ‘Repeat medication list’ may not be honoured.

Prescriptions Online

Patients can now request their repeat prescriptions via this website.

To access the services you will require a login and password. The login is generated by the practice and a printout of your login will be given to you.

Once you have your login details please go to the following Patient Access website to create your own password.
When you have logged onto the site with your password, you will then be able to see a list of all your repeat medication. Please tick the items you require.

The request is then sent directly to our computer system and our staff will action your request.

How to collect a repeat prescription

Allow 48 hours for the prescription to be processed. Prescriptions can be collected from the surgery during normal working hours or from a designated chemist by arrangement. We can post your prescription to you, if you provide a stamped address envelope, but please allow one week for this.

We review all patients using repeat medication on a regular basis and you will be asked to attend the practice to see a doctor or a nurse at intervals of not less than one year. If you fail to attend this review we cannot guarantee to continue to supply your medication unless we can be clinically satisfied your condition is stable. 

How can I choose a designated chemist or pharmacy

Such a service can be initiated at your request. We will require written consent from you to use this method of repeat prescribing. You may nominate more than one pharmacy.

The ordering of prescriptions remains your responsibility and collection of the prescription is the responsibility of the pharmacy.
