Reapeat Prescriptions

If you are on long-term medication and need regular repeat prescriptions this can be arranged. You should keep the re-order slip that is attached to the right hand side of your repeat prescription ready for your next order.

Please tick the items that you require on your repeat order slip and either drop this into the box on the wall at the side of our reception desk or hand your order to the receptionist at the desk. We also accept orders by post. If you include an SAE we will post your prescription back to you.

Please note that our reception staff are instructed not to issue any item requested more than 4 days early other than in exceptional circumstances. If you will be on holiday at the time your next prescription is due we would be happy for this to be issued early please let us know.

Please allow 2 clear working days for your order to be processed. Prescriptions are usually ready to collect after 1.00pm.

If you have a query about your prescription and need to telephone us please wait until after 11am when our lines are less busy.
This will ensure our telephone lines are not blocked with routine queries and concerns when patients are trying to contact us urgently for same day appointments when we open at 8am.
Thank you

If you have nominated a Pharmacy for your prescriptions to be sent electronically please do not telephone the surgery to check if your prescription is ready, you should contact the pharmacy directly. We always process electronic prescriptions well within the 48 hour time frame.

Prior to issue of repeat medication you may be asked to attend the practice for a medication review with either the Doctor, Pharmacist or Practice Nurse. Please be assured that you will be given plenty of notice for medication review and we expect patients to co-operate fully with the surgery if you are contacted to attend a clinic to monitor your health.

Please note that we do not take orders for repeat prescriptions by telephone except in exceptional circumstances and by prior arrangement.

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

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.

NHS charges

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 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
