Often medications need to be taken for longer than a single course. If this is the case your GP or nurse may create a repeat prescription for you. This means you can get supplies of your medication for an entire year without having to see your GP. This will only be done once you are stable on a medication and it is agreed between you and your doctor that you need to take it for longer than a single course.
The easiest way to order a repeat prescription is via Patient Access:

How do I get a Repeat Prescription?
Your prescription has two parts. The first part, in green, is to hand in at the chemist to get your medication. The second part, which is white, will list any drugs you get on repeat prescription.
If you need a repeat prescription, please tick the medications you need on the white repeat slip. The slip can be posted in the box in the reception area or you can leave it with the receptionist. If you leave a stamped self-addressed envelope, it will be posted back to you.
We also have a facility to request repeat prescriptions on-line via the link at the top of this page. To use Emis Access you will need a log-on and password provided by us. Simply ask at reception for your log-on details.
We can also arrange your chemist to pick up your prescription to avoid you having to come into the surgery. Please ask for details in the surgery.
To avoid mistakes, it is practice policy not to take requests over the telephone.
