Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions are medications which appear on the reverse of your prescription which your doctor would like you to continue on a regular basis.

How to request a Repeat Prescription

Please note that we need at least 2 full working days for any prescription request.

To avoid errors we cannot accept requests over the phone.

Repeat prescriptions may be ordered in several ways:

Online  -Preferred  Method

You can order your repeat prescriptions via the NHSApp or Airmid apps (once you have created your NHSLogin) or via Airmid / Systm Online using a web browser.

If you are struggling with these options, then you can email your prescription request to  cloister.prescriptions@nhs.net

In Person

Fill in a prescription request form or underline the items needed on the tear-off side of your prescription and drop it into the surgery. Please do not order any medications you do not need. Requests can be dropped through our letterbox if we are closed.

Post

You can post your request to the practice. Please note that we no longer post prescriptions at all. We only send prescriptions via the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) direct to ANY pharmacy in England. We cannot send prescriptions to any pharmacy outside England (e.g. not to Wales/Scotland). If you are currently outside England, you would need to be seen as a temporary patient at a local health service to get any medication.
