Get the NHS App and Request your Medication Online

We strongly recommend that you move to the NHS App for requesting you medication Download the NHS App

You can also use it to book appointments and it is also our recommended point of access to your medical record.

Medication "Not Available"?

We know that it is sometimes difficult to get the medication you need. If the pharmacist tells you the medicine is not available, you could try another pharmacy. The Boots website has a page where you can check if a nearby Boots pharmacy has the medication in stock. Please have a look at this first before contacting the practice: (Note: the Selsey branch appears as '149-151 High Street, Chichester')

Repeat Prescription Requests

There are four ways that our patients can order their repeat medication.

For those with online access, we recommend either:

Each method shows what medication is currently available to you on repeat prescription. You need to set up the NHS App in advance, and you need to register for online access in advance. A third online method is:

This does not need registration or setting up. You will have to remember (and type in) the medication you want, as it doesn't show you a list.

If you want a more traditional way of requesting repeat medication you can:

  • Use a paper request tick box sheet

The tick box sheet is usually given out when you collect a paper prescription. You can also get one when you collect medication from the pharmacy. You can post it to us, bring it in, or place it in the white box outside the medical practice. (We empty the box during every working day).

You cannot make medication requests on the telephone, or via email.

Repeat Prescription Processing

We deal with Repeat prescription requests twice daily. We check them first. The chemist then checks your drugs are in stock, so please allow at least 4 working days for the whole process.

After a certain number of repeat prescriptions the doctor will reassess your medication. Regular medication usually means that regular check-ups are also necessary.

Please note: repeat prescriptions are only issued at the doctor's discretion. We only issue repeat prescriptions when the doctor feels that this is appropriate.
