The NHS app also gives you a barcode for each of your prescriptions, so if your prescription isn’t available at your nominated pharmacy, you can take the code to any other pharmacy for dispensing.

Repeat prescriptions

A repeat prescription is a continuous supply of certain medication that you can routinely order for a set period of time without having to see a doctor. The doctor will arrange for this medication to be available for you to order for a clinically appropriate length of time and you will then require are view. You will be advised that you need to have this done when you are coming to the end of your prescription allocation. 

It is important that you attend your appointments for blood tests and clinical reviews to ensure that your medicines can continue to be safely supplied for you.

What is Repeat dispensing (RD)?

If you are stable on your medicines and your doctor agrees that you should take a medication for along time, then you can sign up for Repeat Dispensing.

This is when your doctor signs six months' worth of electronic prescriptions in advance. The prescriptions are automatically sent to your nominated pharmacy every month or every two months (whichever you prefer, or if restrictions apply). This means that you can simply collect from the pharmacy every month or two months, and you don't need to request your medication from us each time.

Once the six month batch has been used up, your pharmacy will contact us to arrange a further batch. At this point a clinician will review the medication and make sure it is still appropriate for you.

Please contact the prescriptions team to find out more.

How much can I order?

For most medications, you can order up to two months supply at a time. In some cases, for example if it is a controlled drug, you may only order one month's supply at a time. For contraceptive pills, you may order up to six months' supply if you are sure you will be taking it for this length of time.

All my tablets run out at different times, can I get them aligned?
