Reorder your NHS Prescription Medicine in 3 Easy Steps
If your GP is enrolled in the NHS electronic repeat prescription service, you can register to order your prescription online.
Once registered, let us know which medicines you need. Our pharmacy team then order these on your behalf from your GP.
Once we receive your prescriptions from your GP, our pharmacy dispenses your medication. This is then delivered to your door.
Our NHS Repeat Prescription Service is a FREE service available to anyone in England.
The service allows most patients to manage their repeats requests via our app or website. We send you reminders when you are likley to be running out of your medication, and you can then trigger your repeat request, right from your phone.
That's okay. If you want to switch, once you register with our pharmacy service, we will communicate with your surgery to take over the handling and dispensing of your repeat prescriptions.
It is a free service. You don't have to pay anything to use our NHS Repeat Prescription Service for your medicines. However, NHS prescription medicine charges may apply (England Only). Click here to see who is entitled to free prescription.
