Collect a prescription

Once you have your prescription, you will need to take it to a pharmacy to get your medication.

What you need to do to get a repeat prescription

  1. Step 1

    If you like, you can register to book appointments online with the UWE Bristol Health Centre and the Old School Surgery.  

    When you are registered, you will be able to use klinik, an online service allowing you to contact the surgery with your medical query, including repeat prescriptions. 

  2. Step 2

    If you require a repeat prescription, you will need to be assessed by one of our practitioners before your first repeat prescription can be made. You will need to book an appointment with us in order to do this.

  3. Step 3

    Email your request direct to the Old School pharmacy at or Remember that if you email your request your medication will be ready to collect from the Old School pharmacy or your nominated pharmacy after 72 hours.

  4. Step 4

    Once you have your prescription, you will need to take it to a pharmacy of your choice to get your medication. Nearby pharmacies include:

Repeat prescriptions over vacation

Repeat prescriptions over vacation

You can change your nominated pharmacy to your hometown if you've gone home for the vacation as long as you live in England. Just visit your new nominated pharmacy.

You can make prescription requests online through our klinik system. We aim to process your request within 72 hours.

You will still be registered with the UWE Bristol Health Centre if you change your nominated pharmacy.

Get you prescription sent electronically

Instead of visiting your GP with a paper repeat prescription, you can get your prescription sent electronically to a nominated pharmacy or dispenser. You will then be able to pick up your prescription from your chosen pharmacy.

The NHS Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) website has guidance for finding a pharmacy in your area that offers the electronic prescription service. If you wish to nominate a pharmacy, you can make arrangements to do so by visiting that pharmacy in person.
