Ordering repeat prescriptions

All repeat prescription requests should be made in writing and will be processed within 3 working days.

We have several ways to request a repeat prescription:

  • By emailing us at:
  • Request through the NHS app
  • Through patient access
  • On a prescription request form or repeat prescription slip at the surgery
  • Via the community pharmacy
  • By completing the form below

We do not accept prescription requests over the phone.

We only accept urgent prescriptions outlined on the urgent prescription policy: CHHC Urgent Prescription Policy

Urgent requests cause delays in healthcare for other registered patients. Please be considerate of other patients and allow sufficient time for prescription requests to be processed.
