NHS Repeat prescriptions explained

What are
NHS Repeat Prescriptions?

Repeat prescriptions are used when your doctor wants to prescribe medicine that needs to be taken on an ongoing basis.

A repeat prescription is typically used for long term conditions that require ongoing management such as diabetes, COPD and high blood pressure.

How do I order my
NHS repeat prescriptions?

Prescription Service (EPS)?
