Repeat Prescriptions

If you take medication on a long-term basis, your printed prescription will normally show a medication list on the white (tear-off) side. This may then be used as a record and to order a further supply. You can do this by ticking the items you require on your printed list.

  • Order it online via the link at the top of this page
