Prescriptions

Patients on regular medication will require repeat prescriptions which are computerised. Each time a prescription is issued, a new request form is generated to enable you to re order your next month’s repeat prescription.

Requests are not taken over the telephone for reasons of safety.

  • Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed. (not including Saturdays and Sundays)
  • If you require more than one item each month, please try to order them at the same time.
  • In line with the Coastal West Sussex Medicines Team recommendations, most repeat medicines are prescribed for 28 days.
  • If you wish to order online please use the Airmid App, SystemOnline or the NHS App.
  • Or, alternatively you may deliver or post your repeat prescription request to the surgery
  • All prescriptions are produced electronically (EPS). We are therefore no longer able to print green prescriptions on demand.
  • A note may appear on your repeat slip advising that medication needs review.
  • Please then make a routine appointment to see a Doctor.
