Repeat Prescriptions


Since June 2020, the majority of Prescriptions are issued electronically directly to the Community Pharmacy nominated by you. This system is known as Electronic Prescription Service (EPS).


There are now various ways that you can request your repeat medication:

  • in person by coming to the surgery.
  • contacting your nominated community pharmacy.
  • by email to
  • using your NHS APP.
  • using your online access: systmonline.

For more information about these, please speak with our team.

If you wish to request a repeat medication, please tick the relevant items on the printout and return it to reception, either by hand or post. There is a prescription post box outside of the main building entrance that you can put your requests in.

If you would like us to post it back to you, please enclose a stamped addressed envelope.

If you do not have the printout, write your request clearly in block capitals. Include your name, date of birth, address, telephone number and the name if the item you are requesting. Please either post it, put it through our prescription box or hand it in at reception. Please destroy all old repeat forms and use only the current one.

Allow THREE CLEAR WORKING DAYS for your request to be processed, SEVEN if requesting by post.

If you require additional items, which are not included on your printout, your prescription may be subject to delay.

Our clinical team needs to review your treatment periodically and you will be asked to book a medication review when this is necessary. Delays in booking this review may cause delays in your treatment.
