Repeat Prescriptions


Repeat prescriptions are issued at your doctor's discretion and are normally for patients who are on long term medication.

How to request your medication

Step 1:

  1. You can order your repeat prescription directly through this site (via SystmOnline) by clicking the above link. If you are a new or existing patient (not already signed up to use on-line services) then you will need to complete the application form (on the home page of this website) and take it to one of our surgeries to register. You will also need to bring along with you some form of photographic ID, preferably passport or driving licence - you will be given a username and password to log on to the service.  If you were already using this facility through EMIS (our previous clinical provider) you will still need to attend a surgery in person with the above ID to re-register - however there is no need to complete an application form.
  2. Via the pharmacy.
  3. Via your prescription slip submitted into The Limes reception, via post, or fax your prescription slip to us on 01992 566503 for Epping, Theydon Bois or North Weald patients. For Waltham Abbey patients please fax your prescription slip to us on 01992 763866. 

Step 2:

The practice will then process your request.

Step 3:


  • a printed script can be collected at The Limes and taken to your normal pharmacist; or
  • if you have signed a nomination form at the pharmacy of your choice your script will be sent electronically to that pharmacy.
