  • Online via the link at the top of this page - first-time users please complete a registration form at reception to sign up for this service.
  • Drop in the re-order form on the counterfoil of repeat prescription to reception.
  • By arrangement with one of the local pharmacies for them to re-order your prescription.

Your prescription will be ready the following day at the following times:

Cockenzie/Port Seton - surgery hours

Longniddry - surgery hours

Prescriptions ordered on a Friday will be ready for collection on a Monday.

Requesting Prescriptions Not On Repeat

Requests for prescriptions not on your repeat list should be ordered at least one week before they are required.

Medications will no longer be issued on the SAME DAY unless under exceptional circumstances.              

Medication Reviews

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.

PLEASE NOTE THAT SPECIAL REQUEST PRESCRIPTIONS CAN TAKE UP TO 4 DAYS TO PROCESS. Special Request prescriptions are prescriptions which are NOT ON your repeat prescription request form.
