Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:

By Hand – drop your repeat slip in at reception with the required items clearly marked.

We are happy to send your prescription to a pharmacy of your choice in the Helston area. Please indicate on your counterfoil which chemist you prefer - please allow an extra couple of days for the pharmacy to receive and dispense the items.

By email - if you are requesting a prescription on behalf of someone else who is currently self isolating or shielding or cannot access the NHS App you can email
