There are a number of ways to request a repeat prescription. This ideally makes it as easy as possible for you to get your necessary medication without needing to see a doctor every time. Please remember to allow up to 2 working days (i.e. not including weekends or bank holidays) from the time of your request to when it will be ready for you to collect.
A repeat prescription once authorised by the doctor can either be printed out for you to collect from the practice reception, or can be emailed to the pharmacy of you choice by the new Electronic Prescribing Scheme (EPS). If you would like to benefit from this very efficient service please make sure you let the practice reception know your nominated choice of pharmacy.
Requesting via Online Patient Access
This is our preferred method as the on line form encourages you to enter the description of your medication in a way which can be understood clearly by our prescription staff. This minimises the risk of errors. An added benefit of patient access is that the prescribing doctor can communicate to you if need be about your prescription.
Please try to copy the name of your medication exactly as it appears on your prescription and to clearly specify the amount of medication you require for each request. To start ordering medications online, please fill in the prescription request form to be found here.
Post your request to 28 Beaumont Street, Oxford, OX1 2NP, including a stamped addressed envelope if you want your prescription returned to you.
Please make it clear whether or not you wish us to to send the prescription via EPS to your nominated pharmacy or for us to keep the prescription for you to collect from the practice reception.
Remember to include your name, address, date of birth, contact number, and name, quantity and dose of each drug on your prescription request. Ideally enclose a copy of your white repeat prescription summary which allows you to mark which medications you require.
