If you are taking regular medication the GPs may consider you are suitable for repeat prescriptions. To ensure accuracy, we ask patients to use the prescription counterfoil or to submit written requests for medication
Requests may be handed in at reception, placed in the box in the porch or posted. You may collect in person, enclose an SAE for return by post or arrange for a chemist to collect. If possible, please let us know at the time that you order your prescription which method of collection you intend to use.
Alternatively you can order online via the link at the top of this page. If you would like to use this facility please print and complete the application form and hand it into reception. You may be required to provide some photo I.D.
Due to Covid-19 we are temporarily allowing patients to order prescriptions over the phone between 2pm and 5pm. This is for patients who do not have access to online services or email.
In order to support patients with limited access we request that any patients who are able to register for online services contact the Surgery by telephone.
Please try to order all of your monthly requirements at the same time.
Prescriptions will be ready within 2 working days of ordering.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).
The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
