Patient led prescription ordering - 
Putting patients in control of their repeat prescriptions 

We, along with many GP surgeries across Nottinghamshire, no longer accept repeat prescription requests from pharmacies for most patients. Our Doctors are asking patients to order their own medicines using one of the following options.

Online ordering via SystmOnline or the NHS App
            Ask at reception for an application form for our online system, or you can sign up directly with the NHS App

Drop off 
            Drop off your repeat prescription directly—just post it in the postbox to the right of our front doors 

            Post your repeat prescription request to The Oaks Medical Centre at the above address

We will not be accept prescription requests via the pharmacy from patients without prior agreement. 

Repeat Prescriptions


You can now request your repeat prescription online. Please see reception to register for online services or sign up for the NHS App.

If you need to continue taking regular medicines, then your doctor may give you a computer repeat slip. Tick the box for the drug you require and put it in the letterbox to the right of our front door.  

Prescriptions will be ready for collection the next working day after 3pm. To provide this level of service, we rely on you using the system responsibly and not asking for your prescriptions sooner.

If you include a stamped addressed envelope then we will post it back to you. If you are signed up to the Electronic Prescription Service, you can collect your prescription direct from your nominated pharmacy without collecting it from the surgery. Please note these prescriptions will be with the pharmacy by 3pm the next working day but the pharmacy will need time to prepare your medication. 

Please note we do not routinely take repeat prescription requests over the phone. With several thousand drugs and over 60,000 repeat prescriptions per year, this could lead to dangerous errors and prevent us running an efficient service for those who use it properly.
