All of our repeat prescriptions are on the computer and all patients who are on long term treatment will have a copy of these attached as a tear off slip when they collect their prescriptions. A review date is also printed on the slip to remind you when your doctor needs to review your medication.
Please do not ask the doctor for a repeat prescription during an ordinary consultation if your medication review is not due yet.
There are several ways to get your repeat prescription:
- The online ordering service - via the above link (you will need a PIN number from the surgery before you can register fully for this service).
- Internal Prescription Box - an internal prescription box for posting your tear off slip is situated near the dispensary hatch. You can use this service anytime between 8.00am and 5.45pm each weekday (Monday to Friday).
- Post - You can post your prescription request including a stamped addressed envelope if you require us to post your prescription back to you. If you use this method please ensure you request your prescription in plenty of time for it to be returned to you before you run out of medication.
- Order at the chemist you regularly use.
We no longer offer a prescription ordering service by telephone unless you also use our dispensary service for your prescriptions.
We no longer accept repeat prescription requests by email, please use our online repeat prescription ordering service.
Please remember to tick the medication you require and please allow 72 hours between ordering and collecting your prescription.
Dispensing patients can order via telephone on 0191 5128919 on a Tuesday and Thursday 9.30am - 11.30pm. We also offer a delivery service for dispensing patients on a Wednesday and Friday 11.30am - 1.30pm.
Please note that, as from 1st July 2016, it will no longer be possible to transfer prescriptions issued during private consultations (for example at the Spire Hospital in Washington and the Nuffield Hospital in Jesmond) on to NHS prescriptions.
Patients receiving such private prescriptions must have them dispensed at either the private hospital concerned or at any community pharmacy.
