How to order a repeat prescription
If you take medicine regularly, you’ll usually have a repeat prescription.
This means you can order your medicine when you need it without having to see a GP until your next medicine review.
You might be able to ask your pharmacy for your medicine if your GP has set this up (repeat dispensing). If not, you’ll need to order your medicines from your GP surgery each time.
There are 3 ways to order a repeat prescription from your GP surgery:
- Using your NHS account
You can order a repeat prescription by logging into your account using the NHS app or NHS website, which can be accessed via a smartphone, tablet or computer.
Log in – NHS App Online (service.nhs.uk)
Please speak to a member of our Reception team who can assist you in setting up your account.
If you wish to nominate a pharmacy, you can only nominate a high street pharmacy. You’ll be able to collect your medicine in person when it’s ready. Some high street pharmacies also deliver.
- Using Patient Services
‘Patient Access’ allows you to take control of your healthcare, connecting you to local health services, including ordering repeat prescriptions.

- By attending your GP surgery
You do not need to see a GP to order a repeat prescription, however, if you are unable to use online services to order your medication, you can request this medication in writing (email: [email protected]), via our reception desk or using the post box outside the Practice door – for legal reasons, we are unable to process any prescription requests over the telephone. The surgery can arrange for your medication to be sent to your nominated pharmacy.
Please allow 2 full working days to process your request.
Should you have any queries about your medication, please contact the surgery on 0161 998 2503 and ask to speak to a member of the pharmacy team or email [email protected]
