How Do I Obtain A Repeat Prescription?

You can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways.

  2. Email your prescription request to: nmccg.hazeldenemc@nhs.net. Please make sure to put your name, date of birth and address in your email.
  3. Complete the right hand side of your previous prescription clearly marked with the items required and return this to reception prescription box or post to us.

Prescriptions will be ready for collection in two working days (48 hours).

Please note we only accept requests over the telephone in exceptional circumstances.
