Through the national NHS App -
From Wednesday 1 April 2020, we are making changes to the way you can order your repeat prescriptions.
What are repeat prescriptions?
Repeat prescriptions are those medicines you receive on a regular basis, usually for a long-term condition, without having to go and see your GP every time you need them.
Some people order these repeat prescriptions themselves and other choose a pharmacy or dispensing company to order on their behalf.
What is changing?
From 1 April 2020, you (or a person youíve nominated) will have to order your repeats prescriptions directly from Kingston Health Hull. You will no longer be able to order repeat prescriptions through your pharmacy, an online pharmacy or other dispensing contractor.
What is not changing?
If you already order your repeat prescriptions from Kingston Health Hull youíre not affected and donít need to do anything.
If you collect your medicine from your local pharmacy, or have arrangements in place to have it delivered to your door then speak to your pharmacy to continue these arrangements.
If you receive your medication through a monitored dosage system, for example a dosette box or a blister pack, this change will not affect you.
What do you need to do?
From 1 April 2020, or earlier, if you currently order your repeat prescriptions from a pharmacy, you will have to order from Kingston Health Hull instead. You can do this:
Online - all you have to do is register with us. -and then use the link below to order your repeat prescriptions
In person here at the practice - Simply tick the medicines you need on the white, tear-off section of your prescription and drop it in to us.

One-off prescriptions which are not regularly repeated are known as 'acute' prescriptions.
You can ask your chosen pharmacist for advice on minor ailments and if it is appropriate you may be able to buy medicines over the counter without having to see the doctor.
If you feel it is more appropriate to see the doctor, or if the pharmacist advices you to make a GP appointment, your doctor may prescribe, refer you to another health care professional - or may decide to offer no prescription at all.
If you are sure that your medical problem is minor, it may the doctor may issue a prescription following a telephone request to our receptionist. In certain circumstances, he may telephone you for more information or invite you to attend the surgery for assessment,
