Please use the computerised request slip wherever possible.We do not accept prescription requests by telephone.

Please be aware that any medication available over-the-counter at any pharmacy cannot be requested as an urgent prescription
Alternatively you can register for our online services and order via the link at the top of this page. We are linked for electronic prescribing to your nominated pharmacist-please discuss this with them
Repeat prescriptions are usually available within 48 hours. However, should there be a query it is safest to allow four working days. You can leave a stamped addressed envelope for your prescription to be posted back to you if you wish.
We also have an arrangement with our local pharmacist, Mr Vinu Patel (8 Pennine Parade, Pennine Drive) so if you would like to collect your prescription from him this can be arranged. Please let us know at the time of ordering if you have another preferred pharmacist.

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.
