However you request your medication, please always allow a minimum of 48 hours (excluding weekends) or two working days for prescriptions to be processed. Many local pharmacies also offer a repeat prescription collection service but this may take longer than two working days, as many requests are not passed to us immediately by the pharmacy. All requests, including those from this website, are dealt with strictly in the order they are received by the surgery.
Please ensure that you nominate a pharmacy so that we can issue your prescription electronically. It’s easier, faster and more reliable than using the older green paper prescriptions.
Please note that repeat prescriptions from the GP surgery cannot be collected from Edmonton Walk-In Centre.
If you request something you have not had for some time, or something the doctor has not authorised as a repeated item, you may also have to wait longer as a doctor will have to check your request, and may need to talk to you about it. Some medications, particularly some prescribed in hospital, need regular blood or other tests to make sure they are being prescribed at the right level. Your doctor may be unable to prescribe more medication if these tests are not up to date.
All computer prescriptions will have a clear review date stated. This means the doctor will want to speak to you about your medication before continuing it. This is to ensure your safety and reduce waste. For prescription enquiries, please submit your questions via our online Prescription Question form.
