Prescriptions at Kingkerswell and Ipplepen Medical Practice

You can order an NHS repeat prescription from your pharmacy by using our online system.

Find out how to get a repeat prescription online, how much prescriptions cost and how your local pharmacist can help you without having to see your GP.

How to order a repeat prescription

You can get a prescription online. Use our online system to order a repeat prescription. You will need to choose a pharmacy to prepare your prescription and collect your medication from.

You will also need:

  • An online account
  • The name of the medication and dosage
  • To be at least 17-years old.

You can request a repeat prescription by hand or postal delivery. 

Tick the items you need on the right-hand section of your previous prescription form and post your request in the dedicated letter boxes at the surgery. At Kingskerswell this can be located in the entrance lobby for use when the health centre is open. At Ipplepen there is a letter box by the dispensary hatch near the front door. 

Nominating a pharmacy

When you order a repeat prescription online, you will have to nominate a pharmacy to prepare your prescription and for you to pick it up from.

You can nominate a pharmacy by using the NHS App or logging into the NHS website using a web browser. A high street pharmacy is where you collect your prescriptions in person. If you have chosen an online-only pharmacy, then they will send your prescription in the post.

If you order your prescription online:

  • You will no longer need to collect paper prescriptions from our surgery
  • Your nominated pharmacy will have your prescriptions ready to collect until you change or remove them.

For more information about nominating a pharmacy, visit the Nominating a Pharmacy page on the NHS website.

Your local pharmacy's details

At Ipplepen we are fortunate to have an in-house prescription dispensary, which can dispense your medication if you do not live within a 1.6km distance of a pharmacy.

The dispensary keeps a stock of the most commonly prescribed medications. Less common items can usually be obtained within 24 hours.

After seeing a clinician in the Practice you may be prescribed some medication. This will be electronically sent to the pharmacy. 

Please go to the dispensary hatch by the front door and if you are able to wait, this will be made up for you, normally within 10 minutes.

Please use the in-house Dispensary so we can retain this vitally important service for the residents in our rural communities. Repeat prescriptions can be collected during opening hours, but remember we close for training, development and audit work between 1pm-2pm every day except on Thursdays 1pm-3pm.

How your pharmacy can help

For symptoms that are more serious, we suggest visiting your GP or nurse. You can book an appointment by going to our Appointments page.
