Repeat Prescriptions

  Requesting Repeat Prescriptions

Please request your medications at least five working days before they run out.  We ask that all patients sign up to the Electronic Prescribing Service, nominate a pharmacy and, where possible, request their medication online or via your chosen chemist.  All Swanage chemists will order and collect your prescriptions from the surgery.  You then only need to go to the chemist for your medicine.  

  Ordering Repeat Prescriptions Online

You can order repeat prescriptions quickly and easily online 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

  Paper Repeat Prescription Requests

If you are not able to order your repeat prescriptions online, your prescription request can be made in person at the surgery.  Paper requests may be posted through the Practice letterbox outside the surgery front entrance.  The letterbox is checked regularly through surgery opening hours.  Please note that we do not take prescription requests over the phone. 


Your local pharmacy (chemist) will answer any questions you may have regarding your medication and will be able to provide advice and over the counter treatments for minor ailments.  They can also look after some of your other healthcare needs, and it is worth asking each of them for the details of the services they provide.  Your local paper has details of pharmacies open late on weekdays and on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays.  Or you can search online using the NHS Pharmacy opening hours page by following this link:>>
