Please do not telephone the surgery to request your medication as we are unable to accept non written requests over the phone.

111 Online

111 online can be used to request medication, even when the surgery is open for all medication requests.

  • Please allow 5 working days for prescriptions to be processed.
  • Please request your repeat medication ahead of time allowing for time to process.
  • If you are travelling on holiday and require your medication early, please request this a head of time in writing to the prescription team.
  • In line with NHS Sussex recommendations, most repeat medications are prescribed for 56 days.
  • All prescriptions are produced electronically and will automatically be sent to your chosen pharmacy. We are therefore no longer able to print paper prescriptions.
  • A note may appear on your repeat medication slip advising that your medication needs a review. Please look out for this and contact the Surgery to arrange this review.

Repeat Dispensing

If you, or someone you care for, use the same medicines regularly, you may be able to benefit from repeat dispensing from your pharmacist.  This means you won't have to visit the surgery every time you need more medicines.
