Changes to Repeat Prescription Ordering System from September 2019

From September 2 2019, community pharmacies will no longer be able to order repeat medication for patients. Instead patients will order their medication directly from their GP Practice.

Patients will be required to order their own medication directly with the Practice. This can be done by:

  • Online ordering via the Practice website  Find out more
  • Using the tear off part of the repeat prescription and dropping it off at the Practice

There will be a small number of patients for whom the changes will not be suitable and it may be appropriate for their local pharmacy to continue to support them with ordering repeat medication. As part of the project, the Practice will identify these patients and special arrangements will be put in place for them.
