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:
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.
Did you know that every day GP’s in the UK issue 1.5 million paper prescriptions and 70% of these are repeat prescriptions?
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.

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.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
If you run out of your medicines outside of normal opening hours over the festive period and urgently need a refill, there are a few ways to get an emergency supply quickly, even if you're away from home.
Whether you have a prescription to hand or not, NHS Choices has all the information you need to access medicines out-of-hours, ranging from finding your local pharmacy or contacting NHS 111 to finding your local walk-in centre.
