48 hours notice is required for all repeat prescriptions (this period excludes weekends and bank holidays). The counterfoil, which was attached to your last prescription, should be placed in the box provided at reception after ticking the items that you require. Please only tick the items that are authorised for repeat.
Repeat prescriptions can also be ordered online via the link at the top of this page. New users are required to register for this service.
The practice does not accept requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone other than for housebound patients .
Prescriptions should be collected from surgery between 11:00 and 18:00. If you would like your prescription posting back to you, please attach a stamped addressed envelope. The local pharmacy also has information on collection and delivery services which may be available to patients.
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.
CHANGES TO REPEAT PRESCRIPTION SERVICE
We NO LONGER accept any repeat prescription requests from community pharmacies on behalf of patients.
Patients (or their carer, nominated family member/friend) will have to order repeat prescriptions directly from the surgery themselves.
Collection of prescriptions from the practice by community pharmacies on behalf of patients will not be affected.
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.
