Repeat Prescriptions

We run a repeat prescription service for patients who are taking medication regularly.

This is based on a 28-day prescription, as advised by the NHS. 

There are a number of ways to order your prescriptions:

  • To Access or Register for online services please go to our "Set Up Online Services page" which is accessible from our home page. Our supported On-line providers are found in the middle of that page.  
  • Drop your repeat slip in at the surgery.
  • Post your repeat slip to us. If you include a SAE, we can post the signed prescription back to you.

Please allow 2 full working days between ordering your prescription and collection.

Dispensary

If you live more than 1 mile (1.6km) from a pharmacy, you can collect your medication from the dispensary in either our Penistone surgery or the branch surgeries at Thurgoland or Silkstone. Please tell us where you would like to collect your medication.

The dispensary has a weekly delivery service to the surrounding villages for those unable to leave their homes. Please contact dispensary for more details.
