To request a repeat prescription, please follow the guidelines below and choose the right option for you. Please allow 48 hours (two working days), excluding bank holidays, for your prescription request to be processed. We do not accept repeat prescription requests over the phone.
Please be aware repeat prescriptions are not automatically sent to your pharmacy. All medications including those on a repeat prescription still need to be requested. It is the patient’s responsibility to ensure they have made their own arrangements to request medications allowing 48 hours to be delivered to their nominated pharmacy. Prescription requests can be made online, in writing or via the app.
In the event that you have run out of medications only urgent medications will be processed as such (A list of urgent medications can be found at reception). All other medications will be processed via the usual repeat system and will take 2 working days.

Urgent Repeat Medication
Launch of Pharmacy Urgent Repeat Medicines (PURM) Service
What is the PURM service?
The PURM service has been commissioned jointly by NHS England – South (Wessex) and the CCGs in Wessex to ease pressure on the out of hours service and reduce the number of people accessing GP out of hours services and A&E just to ask for a repeat prescription.
The purpose of the PURM service is to ensure that patients can access an urgent supply of their NHS prescribed repeat medicines from a community pharmacy, when they are unable to obtain a prescription before they need to take their next dose.
