You can order your Repeat Prescription in the following ways:

  • Online – To request repeat prescriptions, please use your online account. If you do not have an online account, please use the following link to request access to your online account registration details.
  • By hand – Please leave your written request for repeats at reception
  • By post – Fill in the prescription form using the slip issued with your last prescription and post it to the surgery with enclosed stamped and addressed envelope.
  • By Fax – 0208 398 9825, you can print off a Repeat Prescription Request Form to fax

To avoid mistakes; sorry, but we do not accept requests for prescriptions over the telephone.

  • Because they are potentially addictive we will not prescribe tranquillisers such as Diazepam, Temazepam, Zopiclone and Zolpidem on repeat prescription.
  • Antibiotics will also not usually be given as a repeat prescription.
    Please see a Doctor if you feel you might need these items.

Repeat Dispensing

Lantern Surgery has a 28 day prescribing policy but if you are on a regular monthly prescription it can be prescribed on a 3 – 6 monthly basis.

This is lodged with a local chemist (Repeat Dispensing) and can be collected once a month from the pharmacy. Please do ask if you would like to get your prescription in this way.
