Repeat Prescriptionsorange_pills

Patients eligible for repeat prescriptions can order medication in a number of ways:

  • In person - drop your repeat slip in at reception with the required items clearly marked.
  • By post - send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope and we will post it back to you.
  • Online - follow the link at the top of this page and complete a simple one-off registration.
  • Order directly from the chemist - If you are taking regular prescriptions that do not alter, you can select a chemist of your choice to receive your prescriptions for the next year.  You can then order your prescription directly from the chemist if that is more convenient.

In the interests of safety we DO NOT accept requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.

Please note that only items appearing on the repeat list will be issued.

Medication Waste

£2million pounds a year is wasted in Bolton partly due to ordering medications that are not used.  Please order only what you need.  If a chemist is ordering on your behalf,  they MUST contact you before ordering your prescription to ensure that they are only ordering what you require.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see the doctor for a review after 6 months supply of medication have been issued. Notification should appear on your repeat slip.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.



Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
