Repeat Prescriptions

The easiest ways to order repeat prescriptions are:

These accounts show you all your repeat medicine and dosage and you can choose the ones you need.

You can also:

  • fill out a repeat prescription form 
  • bring the paper form to the practice, Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 5.30pm 
  • request through our email sxicb-smcprescriptionservice@nhs.net 

 

Your prescription will be ready for collection from the pharmacy 3 to 5  working days after you have ordered it.

If you prefer, we can post it back to you (you will need to provide a stamped, addressed envelope). The surgery can't control postal times. So, please be aware and allow time for prescriptions to return during busy periods. Please note we are unable to take prescription requests over the phone

Permission for Prescription Collections

Staff may request a date of birth along with the name when collecting prescriptions. With this in mind, make sure the collector has the right info. We will not give prescriptions to anyone other than the patient. They must have recorded permission.
