Hampton Medical Centre offers patients the convenience of having their repeat medication issued without being seen by a doctor, and ready to pick up, usually within two working days.
Please note, that in order to keep things simple, and avoid misplaced re-order forms or prescriptions, patients need to be aware of the following:
- If you hand in a request for medication into Hampton Medical Centre, the signed prescription will need to be picked up from Hampton Medical Centre.
- If you hand in your re-order form to your local pharmacy, it should be picked up from there. This will usually take more than 2 working days.
Patients can also now order repeat prescriptions online via the link at the top of this page. First time users are required to complete a simple registration. It is not possible to request a repeat prescription over the telephone.

Pharmacists & Reviews
You may be able to collect your medicine straight from the pharmacy every month if your condition is stable and your medicines stay the same.
You may be able to save time when ordering your prescription, by ordering between 3-12 months supplies from your GP and picking up monthly supplies from your regular pharmacy. You will still be able to see your doctor or nurse when you need to.
In time your GP or pharmacist will be able to ensure that you have an equal supply of all your medicines, meaning that you finish them all at the same time. Your GP or pharmacist will be able to review the medicines that you take on a more regular basis. This will mean that you do not take medicines that you no longer need and wastage will be reduced considerably. If your medication is changed, less medicine will need to be thrown away.
If you have any questions or concerns, discuss them with your pharmacist or GP.
