If you are on regular medication you can order repeat prescriptions without seeing the doctor. If you are new to our practice you must see the doctor for your first prescription.
We do not usually give antidepressants, sleeping pills, the contraceptive pill or controlled drugs as repeat prescriptions (without being seen) – please make an appointment if you need more of these medications. If you require a prescription for a medication you do not take on a regular basis you will also need to book to see or speak to the doctor.
Request Prescriptions Online
If you have registered for Patient Access then you can request your repeated medication here. Your prescription request will go directly into the doctor’s inbox on the clinical system for them to authorise. If you are interested in doing this and haven't already registered for Patient Access then please ask at reception. You will be asked for photo ID as it gives you access to confidential information in your medical record.
If you prefer not to go online, you can order your medication from reception in person, by post, by faxing to 0203 049 4889 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, preferably using the right hand side from your prescription.
Telephone requests cannot be accepted unless you are housebound or have mobility problems.
Please allow 48 hours from when you drop in your request for your script to be ready for collection. Please give a contact telephone number for any queries. If you require your prescription to be sent to you please provide a stamped addressed envelope.
Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
You can now have your prescriptions sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice through the EPS v2.
This means that there are no paper prescriptions that can get lost, and there is no delay waiting for the pharmacy to collect the paper prescription from the surgery. As soon as the doctor has authorised your repeat prescriptions they are sent electronically to the pharmacy you have chosen and are ready for you to collect from them.
You need to nominate one pharmacy and your prescriptions will always go to that pharmacy. It can be used just for your repeat medication or for all medication the doctor issues you. If you are interested in doing this then please ask at your pharmacy, or at the practice reception, or the clinician when you see them, and it can be sent up for you.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions. You can request to have this review over the phone.

We are now unable to accept any sharps bin (yellow boxes) from our patient, and patient are required to request collection from Lambeth Council. Please fill out this form and send our email address email@example.com or bring in to the surgery. We will then forward the form to Lambeth Council.
