How Do I Order My Repeat Prescription?

Please allow 7 working days before collecting your prescription.

Prescription Ordering Direct (POD)

For more information about the Prescription Ordering Direct (POD), please visit our Prescription Ordering Direct (POD) Page.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to consult with a pharmacist, a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications. The notification date should appear on your repeat slip.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions. If you have been advised by the surgery that your medication review is due, you will need to fill out our Medication Review Form.

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is a NHS service that allows us to send your prescription(s) directly to your chosen pharmacy. This paper-free prescription service means that you do not have to come into the surgery to collect your prescription.

We encourage all patients to register for this free service. You can register for electronic prescribing by completing our EPS registration form.

Medicine Waste Campaign

In the West Midlands over £35m medicines are wasted each year. Once medicines have left the pharmacy they cannot be recycled or used by anyone else.
