Requesting a repeat prescription
We process hundreds of prescriptions each day, and it is important that we operate a robust process that avoids the potential for error. Each prescription is a legal document, and therefore each prescription needs to be accurate, and checked by a GP before it is signed. For these reasons, it takes two working days from the date of your initial request for us to issue your repeat prescription.
The doctor will need to review you and your medication at regular intervals. You may be asked to make an appointment before a further prescription can be issued
For your own safety we are unable to accept requests over the phone and only medicine authorised by a doctor at this surgery can be given as a repeat prescription.
You can request a repeat prescription in the following ways:
Using the right hand page of your prescription, tick the required items, and leave it with the receptionist. (If you do not have this to hand, clearly write down your name and date of birth, and those items you require). You can collect the completed prescription two working days from the date of your request
clearly write down your name and date of birth, and those items you require and fax your request to 020 7924 3375. You can collect the completed prescription two working days from the date of your request
You can post us the right hand page of your prescription, or a clearly written request with your name and date of birth, and those items you require.

From the pharmacist
Many local pharmacies have a daily collection service from the surgery. Speak to your pharmacist or to reception for details.
This NHS service gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescriptions to the pharmacy of your choice; your doctor can send your prescription electronically to the pharmacy you choose. This could be a pharmacy close to where you live or work. For more information visit www.hscic.gov.uk/epspatients, your pharmacy or ask our receptionist for further information.
