Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in the following ways:
*Written requests must have your full name, DOB and Address including the name, strength and dosage of you required medication
Urgent requests will only be accepted for certain medications, please discuss with reception. If the surgery is closed but you have a prescription you may go to the nearest pharmacy. However, if you are not in possession of a prescription you will need to contact the out-of-hours service to obtain one.
We are a dispensing practice which means that you will be able to collect your medicines straight after seeing your doctor. If your medicine is not held in stock we are usually able to obtain it by the next surgery session.
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 72 working hours for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take into account, Wednesday afternoons, weekends and bank holidays
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 72 hours, excluding weekends, Wednesday afternoons and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
