Repeat Prescriptions

There are several convenient ways to order Repeat Prescriptions. You can leave your request at the reception desk. Alternatively you may fax your request on Fax No 0151 928 2008 or post it, you’re prescription will be ready for collection within a maximum of 48 hours. Please state if you wish your prescription to be collected by a local chemist.

We can only take repeat prescription requests over the telephone for those of our patients who are housebound, but please have to hand the exact name of the drugs/items required so that you do not take up valuable receptionist time. We request that you only telephone prescription requests between 2.00 pm and 4.30 pm. Your prescription will be ready for collection two working days later. Prescriptions ordered on Friday will be ready for collection on Tuesday morning.

All patients on repeat medication must see the doctor at least once during the year

Get your repeat prescriptions re-authorised online

Sometimes getting to the surgery to request a repeat prescription is not practical, so we have an online service you may use to request a repeat prescription of a drug which has been set up by your doctor for repeat prescribing.

Please note, drugs which have not been set up for repeat, which were given for a single episode of illness, or which need review cannot be supplied in this way. Remember, we need 48 working hours to process your request. Prescriptions can be collected from reception (unless you submit a stamped-addressed envelope that can be used to return it to you). If you don't want to use the online form please write to us or drop in and use one of the repeat request forms available at reception instead.
