Prescriptions

Order Your Repeat Prescription Online

Repeat Prescriptions should be agreed in advance with your doctor or the practice pharmacist, and are issued via a computerised system.

The most convenient way to order a repeat prescription is on the Internet, using a system called Patient Access, which you can find on this secure link. To use Patient Access, you first need to be registered at the surgery. Once you are logged into the Patient Access website, you simply tick the items you need from your available list of items.

You can also order your prescription by emailing us at:

blackpool.highfieldprescriptions@nhs.net with your full name, date of birth and items required.

If you prefer not to use the Internet, you can use the printed order slip provided with your last prescription. Please TICK THE ITEMS YOU REQUIRE and place the order slip in the box at our reception desk.

We do not take prescription requests by telephone, but if you have questions or a difficulty regarding a prescription, you can talk to one of our prescription clerks on 01253 957640 between 10.00 am and 1.00 pm each weekday.

If you would like a particular pharmacy to be responsible for ordering your repeat medication, please speak to one of our practice pharmacists about nominating a pharmacy.  They may also be able to deliver the medication for you.

Or alternatively fill in the form below and this will be sent to our prescriptions email address.  There is a 48 hour turn around on issuing prescriptions (this does not include pharmacy processing time)
