Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
- Post your request in the green postbox outside the health centre when we are closed, or in the box on the reception desk.
- Register with the on-line service via the link at the top of this page to order over the internet
- Use the 24 hour answerphone (028 9268 9956)
All patients must order their repeat prescriptions directly from us. All prescriptions take 2 full working days for us to process.
Please nominate a local a pharmacy for us to send your prescriptions to directly so that you can collect your medication from them . You will still have to wait for 2 working days but will only have to make one journey! Please contact the surgery to check if we work with a specific pharmacy or ask them directly. Every pharmacy picks their prescriptions up at different intervals and times of the week.
Please note that requests left on our 24 hour answerphone or via patient access that our not regarding your repeat prescriptions will not be processed.
It is your responsibility to ensure that you always have a supply of your prescription medicines. You should always order your repeat prescriptions in good time.

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into
account. We appreciate your co-operation with this.
