Repeat Prescriptions overview

Go paperless

We are trying to promote a paperless service so that we can provide your prescriptions quickly and efficiently without delays. The first step is to nominate your preferred pharmacy. This way we can send your prescription electronically.

Once you have nominated a pharmacy for your prescriptions, there are several options to order repeat medication. All repeat prescription requests take up to 72 working hours to process from when we receive your request. See below.


The quickest and easiest way to get your medication is to sign up to the NHS App.

Sign up with your preferred local pharmacy for their repeat medication service.

Remember that this can add a day or two to the process unless you have gone paperless.


Drop your repeat prescription into our prescription box outside 168 Medical Group.
