Please give 48 hours notice when requesting repeat prescriptions. They can be collected 48 hours later after 14:00.
If your medicine is on repeat prescription you will be given a computer printout with the details of your medication on it or you can complete our repeat prescription form at our reception front desk.
Please use the above to order a repeat prescription by marking the items required.
You can either:
Items such as contraceptives, HRT and antidepressants are not usually available as a repeat and may therefore not appear on your list. You must therefore make an appointment to see the practice nurse or doctor for these items.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor 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.
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.
PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT TAKE REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS OVER THE TELEPHONE.
