Repeat prescriptions

If you are on continuous medication authorised by your doctor, you can order a repeat prescription.

To order a repeat prescription

  • Use your NHS account (on the NHS website or in the NHS app).
  • Use your Patient Access account (on the Patient Access website or in the Patient Access app).
  • Use the repeat ordering slip on your previous prescription. Leave it at the surgery or post it to us.

Your prescription will be ready for collection 3 days after your order has been received. Only order a repeat prescription if you have less than 7 days of medication remaining.

If we have your mobile number, we will send a text to let you know when your prescription is ready to collect.

You can use an online form to give us your mobile number.

We can also post your prescription to you if you provide us with a stamped, addressed envelope.

Rye Medical Centre is a dispensing practice. This means that some patients can collect their medicines from the surgery.

Go to the Dispensary page to find out if you can collect medicines from the surgery and for more information about our dispensary service, including the rural village pick-up service.

Medication reviews

We have a duty to review your health and medicines regularly. We will let you know if you need to make an appointment for a medication review with either our practice nurses or your doctor.

If you need urgent advice about your medication outside our surgery hours, please call NHS 111.
