Our repeat prescribing is computerised. If you are on regular medication and you wish to receive a further supply, please tick only the items you require on the tear-off computer slip (attached to your last prescription). If you cannot find your repeat slip or were not issued with one, you can put your request in to the surgery in writing with your name, address and item(s) of medication your require.
Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in the following ways:
- In person - drop your repeat slip in at reception with the required items clearly marked.
- By post - send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
- Online - if you are not yet registered to do this, aged over 16 years, have on-line access and would like to order your repeat medication on-line, please contact reception for further information.
Patients can also request in writing for their prescription to be sent to the chemist.
Please note we do not accept requests over the telephone. This is to reduce medication errors.
Electronic Prescription Service
Do you have a repeat prescription?
Did you know that every day GP’s in the UK issue 1.5 million paper prescriptions and 70% of these are repeat prescriptions?
Electronic Prescription Service
A new system has been created to make it easier for you to pick up your repeat prescription. It is called the Electronic Prescription Service, or EPS for short.
The Electronic Prescription Service is an NHS service that sends your prescription from GP surgery to Pharmacy without the need for a paper copy.
Nominate a pharmacy of your choice and this pharmacy will receive your prescription directly from your GP, via the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS).
With EPS you will not have to visit your practice to pick up your paper prescription anymore.
You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because you can choose a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.
EPS is reliable, secure and confidential.
Your electronic prescription will only be seen by the same people in GP practices and pharmacies who see your paper prescription now.
If you are interested in using the Electronic Prescription Service speak to your pharmacist or GP practice staff.
More information about the Electronic Prescription Service visit www.cfh.nhs.uk/eps or ask a member of staff.
To register your nomination, simply download a registration form below or alternatively pick one up from one of our local pharmacies. Please hand your completed registration form to one of the local pharmacy teams and they will be happy to explain more about this new NHS service.

Collection & Delivery Service
You may like to take advantage of the collection and delivery services provided by the pharmacy of your choice. Please contact your chosen pharmacy for information.
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.
Please allow at least 2 working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
