Repeat Prescriptions

If you are on regular medications, prescriptions can be ordered in a number of ways. Please remember to leave 2 working days before collecting your prescription.

Telephone Answer Machine

You can ring 0191 2665055 and leave a message 7 days per week, 24 hours per day.

To ensure we provide you with the correct medication please always remember to leave your full name, date of birth, and the names of the medication you need:


You can use the NHS App to order your medication.

In Writing

Please enclose a S.A.E. if you would like us to return the prescription to you.

In Person or By Telephone

You can order your prescription at our reception desk or via our normal practice telephone number of 0191 2665246 between 10.00am – 5.00pm, Monday to Friday.

Some chemists/pharmacists provide a collection and delivery service for people who cannot collect their medication. Your local pharmacist will be able to provide more details on this.

Electronic Prescription Service  (EPS)

Almost all prescriptions are now signed and sent electronically to a pharmacy. This system is more efficient, faster and safer than using paper prescriptions. Sending prescriptions directly to the pharmacy saves patients coming into the practice. If you have not chosen a pharmacy for your prescription to be sent to please let us know which one you would like to nominate.
