If your long-term medication has been approved on a repeat prescription basis you can order in a number of ways:
- In person - drop your computerised repeat slip in at reception having clearly marked the required items.
- By post - send it to us remembering to enclose a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
- By fax - to 020 7606 0071.
- Online - Patient Online Access website
Please note that requests for medication cannot be accepted over the telephone.
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
If you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit the Practice in future. Instead your GP will send it electronically to the chemist you choose, saving you time. Please go on the link below or ask at reception and pick up a leaflet for details.
Nominate a Local Pharmacy
Patients can choose a pharmacy for their electronic prescription to be sent to a pharmacy of their choice. This is called nomination. Once a patient has nominated their chosen pharmacy, this preference will be stored (on the NHS Spine) unless the patient decides to change their nomination. Speak to practice receptionist or your local pharmacist regarding this arrangement.

Ordering Prescriptions Online - Patient Access
If you do not come into the surgery often or prefer to do things online, register yourself for Patient Online Access on: http://patient.info/patient-access
The website allows you to order your repeat medication straight to the Doctors inbox without delay and allowing you to pick up your prescriptions 48 hours later from a nominated pharmacy or at the Surgery. Please speak to our Reception team member to register for online services.
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 two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. Patients using the postal service should allow longer
