Patients who need regular repeat medication and have had this approved by a doctor will have details of their medication entered onto our computer. When a prescription is issued, the patient should retain the right hand side of the prescription form to use as their next request.
When requesting items please tick the relevant box even if you only have one item on the slip. This confirms you are requesting the medication and avoids confusion.
A single request for all the items over several days diverts staff from other important duties unnecessarily.
If you wish your prescription to be sent directly to the pharmacy, please tick the relevant box.

- Rowlands (formerly Kilnbridge) St. Johns
- Boots, Knaphill
- Boots, Goldsworth Park

How do I order my Repeat Prescription?
Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
- Online – Using our Repeat Prescription Requests triage
- Using our online services – Patient Access
- In person – Post the tear-off slip indicating the medication you require to the surgery, enclosing a stamped self-addressed envelope. If posting please remember to give at least one weeks notice for a first class stamp and longer if using second class. The post box is next to the main reception entrance.
- By post – You can tick your requirements on the repeat slip and put it in the box on the reception desk. If the surgery is closed, please use the external post box next to the main reception entrance.
We do not accept prescription requests over the telephone to avoid the possibility of misunderstandings.
Please make your request in good time to allow at least three working days and make allowances for weekends and Bank Holidays.
If you need to request your medication earlier than usual, please give the reason, e.g. if you are going on holiday.

Patients on repeat medication may be asked to speak to/see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse on an annual basis to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. This may only involve a blood test or blood pressure check.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
