Norton Brook Medical Centre

Repeat prescriptions

To order a repeat prescription

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

If you take medication on a long-term basis you will be provided with a repeat prescription card which you can hand in to the medical centre or pharmacy of your choice to request further supplies.

Your prescription will be processed to the pharmacy 48 hours after your order has been received. Please ensure you have sufficient medication remaining to cover you until your prescription is ready at the pharmacy and allow extra days if ordering near a Bank Holiday weekend.

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

Norton Brook is not a dispensing practice.

However, a branch of Day-Lewis Pharmacy is on site.

Open: Mon – Fri 8:45am to 6pm

Closed: 1pm to 2pm for lunch.

Closed at weekends.

Electronic prescriptions service (EPS)

If you get regular prescriptions or are already using a prescription collection service (where a pharmacy collects prescriptions from your GP practice for you) then choosing a pharmacy to dispense all your prescriptions may save you time by avoiding unnecessary trips to your GP.

You will still order your repeat prescriptions in the same way as you do now, but your prescriptions will be sent electronically to the pharmacy or dispenser of your choice.

You will not have to collect a paper repeat prescription from your GP practice.
