If you require a repeat prescription for medication previously prescribed by the doctor, please ring the surgery between 09:0 and 12:00 and speak to the receptionist.
Prescriptions can also be requested by post and if you enclose a stamped addressed envelope, your prescription will be posted back to you, or you can visit the surgery and hand your prescription to one of the receptionists.
Alternatively you can now order online via the link at the top of this page. First time users are required to complete a simple registration.
We can now send your prescription electronically to a chemist of your choice. Please speak to a member of the reception team or your pharmacist for further details and to register.
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 24 hours for the preparation and signing of repeat prescriptions. Remember to order your prescriptions early for periods such as Christmas and Easter when the surgery may be closed longer than usual.
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
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
