Ordering repeat prescriptions
The easiest ways to order repeat prescriptions are:
- using your NHS account (through the NHS website or in the NHS App)
- using the GP online system, Patient Access, via the link at the top of this page
These accounts show you all your repeat medicine and dosage and you can choose the ones you need.
You can also order:
- In person - use the pre-printed form attached to your prescription (or a request form available from reception)
- By post - Abbey Road Surgery, 1st Floor Alfred Barrow Health Centre, Duke Street, Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, LA14 2LB with a stamped addressed envelope or a postage stamp
- Email - LSCICB-MB.firstname.lastname@example.org
We do not take repeat prescription requests over the telephone.
Collecting your prescription
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed (postal requests may take up to 5 working days) and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. In an emergency we will try to provide same day collection.
If you are requesting an item which you have not had for some time please specify in your request the reason why this item is needed. There may be a time delay in processing these types of requests if sufficient information is not supplied in your initial request or the doctor may wish to speak to you before issuing.
If you have a query regarding your prescription or your medications please telephone the surgery between 08:30 - 13:00 using option 1.
Questions about your prescription
If you have questions about your medicine, your local pharmacists can answer these. They can also answer questions on medicines you can buy without a prescription.
The NHS website has information on how your medicine works, how and when to take it, possible side effects and answers to your common questions.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

What to do with old medicines
Take it to the pharmacy you got it from or bring it in to the surgery. Do not put it in your household bin or flush it down the toilet.
As qualified healthcare professionals, pharmacists can offer advice on minor illnesses such as:
- sore throats
- tummy trouble
- aches and pains
They can also advise on medicine that you can buy without a prescription.
Many pharmacies are open until late and at weekends. You do not need an appointment.
Most pharmacies have a private consultation room where you can discuss issues with pharmacy staff without being overheard.
