Requesting Repeat Prescriptions
If you get regular prescriptions, the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) may be able to save you time by avoiding unnecessary trips to your GP.
EPS makes it possible for your prescriptions to be sent electronically to the pharmacy or dispenser of your choice.
Choosing a pharmacy or dispensing appliance contractor to process your EPS prescription is called nomination.
This means you'll no longer have to collect a paper repeat prescription from your GP practice – instead, you can go straight to the nominated pharmacy or dispensing appliance contractor to pick up your medicines or medical appliances
Repeat prescriptions will be ready in 48 hours from your request.
Please note if your request is not for a repeat prescription or for different medication than recorded on your record, it may not be possible to agree to your request, it might take longer to process and/or the doctor may need to speak with you.
- Using Patient Access (Log-in here or get info on how to register here)
- By completing a prescription request form in Reception
- Through your registered Pharmacy
- By post*
Medication reviews are an integral part of providing safe and effective care for our patients and you will be asked to attend promptly for medication reviews. Please respond to any prompts you receive in this regards.
We can’t accept repeat prescription requests over the telephone. This reflects a change in local policies.
*If you require your repeat prescription to be posted to you please include a self-addressed & stamped envelope along with your prescription request.
Our Repeat Prescribing Policy concords with rest of the NHS Greenwich CCG; a copy of this can be found here.
