Repeat Prescriptions overview

Go paperless

We are trying to promote a paperless service so that we can provide your prescriptions quickly and efficiently without delays.

The first step is to nominate your preferred pharmacy to enable us to send your prescription electronically. Once you have nominated a pharmacy for your prescriptions, please follow the options below to order repeat medication.

All repeat prescription requests take 3 full working days to process from when we receive your request.


The quickest and easiest way to get your medication is to sign up to the NHS App.

For a full list of other online options, visit the apps page.


Sign up with your preferred local pharmacy for their repeat medication service.

Remember that this can add a day or two to the process unless you have gone paperless.
