Repeat Prescriptions

If you need regular prescriptions we will be happy to arrange this. Please allow 1 working day when ordering your medication if you order before midday. Allow 2 working days if you send your email after midday.

The best way to request repeat prescriptions is on-line. Please sign up for online services: see the 'quick link' at the top right corner of this page. If you have not already enrolled for online services you have to first visit our Practice in person (with photo ID) to obtain a registration form which contains your unique PIN number and gives instructions on how to register on the EMIS-Access website and obtain your username and password for the service. On-line access is quicker, reduces the risk of mistakes and is more efficient for us. It also allows other benefits such as booking appointments while the reception is closed.

You may also request your repeat medication by e-mail on  This is useful if you need a small change to the dose or quantity or want to have a new issue of an old prescription which is not listed as a routine 'repeat'. You can also come to reception in person to discuss prescriptions.

To avoid errors we do not take medication requests by telephone.

We prefer to use the Electronic Prescribing System (EPS) this allows you to order your repeat prescription from us to go directly to your nominated pharmacy (anywhere in England). This means prescriptions cannot get lost; fewer transcription errors can occur, and it is usually quicker and more convenient for patients, especially if you are not in Oxford all year round. Alternatively prescriptions can be collected from the reception desk.

We ask all newly registered patients to make an appointment to see the doctor before repeat prescriptions are issued.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor or practice nurse at least once a year for review. A review date notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
