Ordering Medications


  • Repeat prescriptions can be ordered by using the tear-off slip attached to your prescription. Simply tick the items you need.


  • You can post the slip to the surgery or hand to reception in person. If you wish this posted back to you , you must enclose a stamped addressed envelope.


  • You can order in person at reception or by telephone on the prescription line (24hr answering machine) 01382 666622.



  • We now offer a secure online service which can be used to order prescriptions.

    Firstly you need to attend the surgery to register for this service and complete a form at reception. During the pandemic, please phone to discuss first.

    You will then need to visit the Vision Patient Services website to complete the process

    The practice is working towards processing all prescription ordering either via the online service or by using the tear-off slip attached to your prescription.  We would encourage patients to contact our reception team to register for the secure online service.

Prescriptions will be ready for collection after two working days.
