If you take medication on a long- term basis you can ask for a repeat prescription by completing the back slip of your previous prescription, or writing down what you need, and handing it in at Reception. If the surgery is closed, you can put your request in the red box at the Reception desk.
Alternatively you can now order online via the link at the top of this page. First time users need to complete a simple registration.
Patients can request to have their prescriptions dispensed or delivered by a pharmacy of their choice if it is more convenient. For more details please contact the practice.
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.
Please allow 48 hours for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
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.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
