Repeat prescriptions can be given for medications taken regularly, usually on a monthly basis. These are issued together with a computer slip giving details of how many times you may re-order or the review date. Whichever of these comes first is the point at which you must make an appointment to see a doctor or nurse practitioner before a further prescription can be issued.
- Repeat prescriptions can be ordered in the following ways:
- by bringing or posting your completed slip to the dispensary
- Using our Online form (please click link above)
- by e-mailing us at email@example.com
- by using SystmOnline via the link at the top of this page

Managed Repeats Service
Would you like to us to manage your repeat medications for you? We can offer you a service whereby when you pick up your prescription, you can tell us what you need for the following month and we will give you a date to pick it up, rather than you needing to reorder.
Even if we are unable to dispense to you, we can assist you by sending your repeat prescription to the local pharmacy of your choice. We have daily pick up services from Boots in Stalham.
To sign up for this service or for further information, please enquire at the dispensary.
