You will receive a list of your repeat prescriptions. You can now choose to order your repeat prescriptions online. Please speak to a receptionist and they will organise your password. Alternatively you can tick the items you require on the slip and either post or deliver the slip to the surgery.  

Please only order the medication that you need.

Please allow a minimum of 5 working days for collection.

We can dispense medicines for most villages, except Kimbolton, Stoneleigh and a few outlying villages. If you live in one of these you will be given a prescription to take to a chemist.

Home Visits

If you are too ill to come to the surgery, a home visit can be arranged by telephoning the surgery, preferably before 10.00am.
Please be prepared to give details to our receptionist as this will help us to see the most urgent cases first.
