Ordering Repeat Prescriptions

You can order a repeat prescription in the following ways:

Please allow 3 working days for routine prescriptions.

We cannot accept telephone requests for repeat prescriptions as this may lead to mistakes being made.

NHS Electronic Prescriptions Service (EPS)

Oxted Health Centre now uses the NHS Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS).

Under this service, instead of a paper prescription being printed and collected, the prescription can be sent electronically to the patient’s chosen pharmacy or Appliance Company .

This is an optional service: if you want your prescriptions to be sent electronically, you must speak to your chosen pharmacy and nominate them officially.

Patients will not automatically have their prescriptions sent this way, but if you wish to register for this service please fill out our online EPS form.

The NHS EPS is a secure and confidential service and your electronic prescription will only be seen by the same people who see your paper prescription now (GP practice staff, pharmacy staff, NHS prescription payment and fraud prevention agencies).
