  1. Telephone "Prescription Ordering Direct": Ring  01952 580350 Monday to Friday between 8am and 6pm

  2. Online: Order online by visiting https://www.patientaccess.com/ (please note, this service is not available for patients under 16 years old. If you are accessing this for the first time, you will need to be registered with this service click here for details)

In order to process the large amount of requests each day please note that 72 hours notice is required for repeat prescription requests, so please do not wait until you have run out of your medication before you request it.

As such, Prescription times are as follows:

PUT IN (before 3pm)      PRESCRIPTION READY

Monday                             Thursday

Tuesday                             Friday

Wednesday                        Monday

Thursday                           Tuesday

Friday                                Wednesday

We do not take repeat prescriptions over the telephone.

Submitting a repeat prescription early

Repeat prescriptions can be ordered up to 7 days in advance. If you need to order a repeat prescription early, please give a reason i.e. going on holiday. Not doing so may delay your prescription or it may be rejected.
