Prescriptions

Urgent advice: Important

  • We NO LONGER take repeat prescriptions over the telephone unless you are housebound

  • If you need to order your prescription please order online. You can use SYSTMONLINE or the NHS App to do this. Or you can bring your repeat slip in to the practice and leave it in the prescription box. 

  • All repeat medicines need reviewing at times. So you may need to speak to the GP, or you may need monitoring bloods before we can issue them.
