Ordering repeat prescriptions

The easiest ways to order repeat prescriptions are:

  • using your NHS account (through the NHS website or in the NHS App)
  • using the SystmOnline GP online system via the link at the top of this page

These accounts show you all your repeat medicine and dosage and you can choose the ones you need.

You can also:

Please note repeat medication requests will be processed from 0800 hrs until 1300 hrs Monday to Friday.  Any requests received after 1300 hrs will be processed the next working day (or Monday if requested on a Friday).

We do not take repeat prescription requests over the telephone or email.

Collecting your prescription

You can usually collect your prescription from the pharmacy 5 working days after you have ordered it.

You will need to choose a pharmacy to collect your prescription from. We call this nominating a pharmacy.

You can change your nominated pharmacy at any time:

  • on the app or website where you order repeat prescriptions
  • at your GP practice
  • at any pharmacy that accepts repeat prescriptions

If you are a Dispensing patient you can collect 5 days after you have ordered. This is 5 working days not including bank holidays or weekends. Greens Norton have a new procedure in which we will text patients once their prescription is available to collect and this will be happening at Weedon Surgery over the next coming month to make collections more efficient. 

Questions about your prescription

If you have questions about your medicine, your local pharmacists can answer these. They can also answer questions on medicines you can buy without a prescription.

The NHS website has information on how your medicine works, how and when to take it, possible side effects and answers to your common questions.

If you would like to speak to someone at the GP surgery about your prescription:

  • telephone our pharmacist after 1000 hrs.
  • fill in our medication query form.

Medication reviews

If you have a repeat prescription, we may ask you to come in for a regular review. We will be in touch when you need to come in for a review.
