Prescriptions at Corner Place Surgery

You can order an NHS repeat prescription by using our online system.

Find out how to get a repeat prescription online, how much prescriptions cost and how your local pharmacist can help you without having to see your GP.

How to order a repeat prescription

The preferred ways of ordering your prescription are as follows (in order of most preferred):

NHS App or NHS App Online

This is our most preferred way of receiving prescription requests.

Patient Access

Please follow the link below to login or register for Patient Access online services.  Please note if registering for first time use, you will also need to come into the surgery with 2 forms of ID before this can be set up.

Please note the NHS App is preferred over Patient Access as it offers the same services, but you are able to register without having to come into the surgery with 2 forms of ID.

Using our online consultation service

Select 'I have a prescription request or enquiry' then 'repeat medication request'.

Unlike the NHS App and Patient Access, where you only have to tick the items you require, you will have to complete all your details, much in the same way as the current email system.

This service is available Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm.

Paper request

You can either tick the items you require on your repeat prescription list or fill in a white request form in the reception foyer.

Put the request into the prescription post box (can be accessed from the outside of the building or just inside the reception foyer).

Avoid Delays - If you are requesting a medication that is not on your regular list, or a medication that you have not had for some time, or you are requesting a medication early, please give a reason for your request.

When will your prescription be sent to the pharmacy?

Day you order your prescription

Day prescription will be at the pharmacy











Please note the above does not include the time it takes for your pharmacy to get your items ready.  All pharmacies vary in the time they take to dispense your medication.  You will need to check this with your nominated pharmacy.

Nominating a pharmacy

When you order a repeat prescription, you will have to nominate a pharmacy, they will prepare your prescription ready for you to collect.

You can nominate a pharmacy by using the NHS App or logging into the NHS website using a web browser. A high street pharmacy is where you collect your prescriptions in person. If you have chosen an online-only pharmacy, then they will send your prescription in the post.

If you order your prescription online:

  • You will no longer need to collect paper prescriptions from our surgery.
  • All of your prescriptions will be sent to your nominated pharmacy until you change or remove them.

For more information about nominating a pharmacy, visit the Nominating a Pharmacy page on the NHS website.

How your pharmacy can help

Pharmacists are qualified Healthcare Professionals who can help you with minor health concerns. They can offer medical advice and over-the-counter medicines for minor illnesses like coughs, colds, tummy problems and aches and pains.

For symptoms that are more serious, we suggest visiting your GP or nurse. You can book an appointment by going to our Appointments page.

Over the counter medication

Your GP, nurse or pharmacist will not generally give you a prescription for over the counter medicines for a range of minor health concerns, even if you qualify for free prescriptions.

Instead, over the counter medicines are available to buy in a pharmacy or supermarket in your local community. The team of Health Professionals at your local pharmacy can offer help and clinical advice to manage minor health concerns and if your symptoms suggest it's more serious, they'll ensure you get the care you need. Please help the NHS to use resources sensibly.
