Repeat prescriptions can be ordered in writing using the slip attached to your last issue. Simply tick the items required and deliver/post it to the surgery. Please enclose a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
You can also order online via the link at the top of this page. New users to the system are required to complete a simple registration.
We regret we are unable to take prescription requests over the telephone.
Most prescriptions now have bar-codes to facilitate the process when medication needs to be issued. The bar-coding contains information for the pharmacist. The prescription may be scanned and the relevant names of the medicines will appear on the pharmacy computer screen. These new-style prescriptions, as with present system, can be collected by your pharmacy of choice, if you have so instructed.
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 two full working days 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
