Repeat Prescriptions

Please request your repeat medication at least 2 working days in advance.

You can order your repeat prescription online via the link at the top of this page or you can email chatfield.prescriptions@nhs.net

During the current coronavirus epidemic we will accept repeat prescription requests over the telephone.

If you require a repeat prescription you will be asked to nominate a pharmacy, if you have not done so already, so that the prescription can be sent electronically directly to the pharmacy that you can collect from there without having to attend the surgery. 

Most local chemists are happy to order, collect, and deliver your medication if required. We also offer an Electronic Prescription Service (EPS). It is a faster, paperless way for us to send your prescription to a pharmacy of your choice.


Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) Phase 4

We will soon be upgrading to the next phase of EPS, which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically. 

Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money. You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now.

Medication Reviews

All patients on repeat medication will need to have their medication regularly reviewed by a doctor. Please ensure that you make an appointment for this review before your review date, printed on the bottom of your prescription receipt. On occasion you may need to see your doctor for a review before a further prescription will be issued.
