Please email your request to:

We are unable to accept prescriptions requests by phone.

Please note we are keen to process prescriptions as quickly as possible but we also need to ensure that medications are issued safely and appropriately to our patients.

Repeat prescription requests which are within the clinical review date will be processed and issued within 72hrs. Please allow three full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

Some requests will be passed to a GP for decision on issue, this may occur if:

  • You request medication which is NOT on your repeat list
  • Your repeat medication has not been reviewed recently by a doctor and needs monitoring
  • You are requesting medication too early (without a clear reason)
  • There are discrepancies in the medication information we have e.g. from hospital letters etc

Please ensure that we have an up to date contact telephone number to enable us to contact you with any questions regarding your request.

Please DO NOT duplicate your request.

You will not receive a reply to emails unless we are querying your request. If you do not receive an email from us, please check with your nominated pharmacy after 72 hours for your prescription. 

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.

This email is for prescription requests only. Please do not email medical queries or requests to book appointments.
