Repeat prescriptions

Ordering repeat prescriptions

The easiest ways to order repeat prescriptions are:

  • Patient Access or NHS account/NHS App – this is the most secure way to order your repeat prescriptions, it removes the chance of any mistakes being made and the request goes straight to the GP.
  • E-mail your request and please include your full name, date of birth, address and the full list of items you require to:




***Please Note the repeat prescription e-mail address is only to be used for ordering repeat prescriptions***

These accounts show you all your repeat medicine and dosage and you can choose the ones you need.

You can also:

  • If you are a dispensing patient please remember to write in the message box on screen which surgery you wish to collect your prescriptions from, before submitting your request.
  • Repeat Prescription Box – post your request in the repeat prescription box in reception.
  • Post your request to us – please ensure the envelope is clearly marked “Repeat Prescriptions – Dr Campbell and Partners” – if you need your prescription posting back to you please enclose a stamped addressed envelope.
  • For telephone prescriptions please phone between the hours of 9.00am to 12.00pm Monday to Friday – Please do not phone the surgery before 9am.

Collecting your prescription

Please allow 48 hours for direct or e-mail request, patient access/nhs app and 5 days for postal requests.

Requests for repeat prescriptions will only be treated as URGENT in exceptional circumstances.

You will need to choose a pharmacy to collect your prescription from. We call this nominating a pharmacy.

You can change your nominated pharmacy at any time:

  • on the app or website where you order repeat prescriptions
  • at your GP practice
  • at any pharmacy that accepts repeat prescriptions

Questions about your prescription

We have a Clinical Pharmacist, Alice Williams, who is responsible for dealing with any medication queries.  Please contact her at our Tarporley surgery between the hours of 9.30am and 4.00pm Monday to Thursday and between 9.30am and 11.30am on a Friday.

If you have questions about your medicine, your local pharmacists can answer these. They can also answer questions on medicines you can buy without a prescription.

The NHS website has information on how your medicine works, how and when to take it, possible side effects and answers to your common questions.

Dispensary information

We are a Dispensing practice and can dispense medication to patients who live more than a mile from the nearest chemist.  We have three well stocked dispensaries in Tarporley, Tarvin and Waverton.

About pharmacists

  • coughs
