Repeat Prescriptions

If you are taking regular medication that your doctor has told you that you can have on a repeat prescription, you can hand in your request at reception between 8.30am and 6pm Monday to Friday (we have a post box on the wall so you don’t have to queue).

Alternatively, you can post your request to us – if you include a stamped addressed envelope we will post it back to you.

If you wish to fax us your request the fax number is 0191 5843 786.

You can telephone us to order your repeat prescription 0191 5842632 between the times 9.30am – 12noon, and 1.30 – 6pm.

You can also order online using the form below. Our local pharmacies also offer collection schemes – ask reception for more details on this service.

When ordering you must be able to give us the names of the medication you require. If you find you are having to order your medication at different times throughout the month, just let us know and we will bring your drugs in line to allow you to order everything at the same time. Prescriptions will be ready for collection within two working days

The doctor will normally undertake a review of your medication once a year, or more regularly in certain circumstances. The date of your next review can be found on the sheet attached to your prescription.

Reception staff are unable to change or issue medication that has not been authorised by a doctor and they cannot hand out prescriptions to callers under the age of 16.

Wasted Medication

Lots of medication is wasted every year in the NHS. Please help us by only ordering the items you need. Items will not be removed from your repeat prescription just because you are not ordering them every time.

Using the online service

This is an ordering service only and staff are not able to reply to e-mails. We have tried to make this repeat prescription service as secure as possible but confidentiality breaches can occur. The practice cannot be held responsible for information sent using this method.
