Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions may be ordered on-line via the link at the top of this page (registration required). To complete the registration process you will need to bring in 2 forms of ID i.e proof of address and photo ID into the surgery. 

Alternatively, you can order by your local pharmacy with a tick indicating which medicines you require. If your usual repeat medication does not appear on the list, this may be because it needs to be reauthorized by the doctor.  Please add a note in the free text box on the screen requesting the medication and the doctor will authorise if appropriate. 

For patients who are aged under 16 only, or if you prefer not to use the on-line service, please either order in person, or through your local Pharmacy.

If you misplace your repeat prescription slip please supply us with the following details in writing:

  • full name
  • date of birth
  • contact number
  • usual doctor
  • name, strength and dose of medication required.

To avoid mistakes, we do not accept requests by telephone.

Please allow at least 2 working days for processing.

You can also order your prescriptions via email to trccg.firswayprescriptions@nhs.net your request will be processed within two working days.
