Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions

Please highlight which medication you require on the tear-off slip attached to your previous prescription, or write down exactly what medication you require, and submit it to the practice either by post or by putting it in the Repeat Prescribing Deposit Box by the door in the waiting room.

You can now order your repeat prescriptions on line. You need to be registered for this service. This can be done by attending the surgery and asking for on line access. Once you have registered, you can use the link at the top of this page to order your repeat prescription

Alternatively, if the surgery is closed, you can post your request in the surgery letter box.

If you are unable to get to the surgery to collect your prescription, please enclose a stamped, addressed envelope and we will post it to you. Alternatively, we can arrange to have your prescription delivered to you.  Please ask when you put in your repeat prescription request.

We do not accept repeat prescription requests over the telephone unless you are housebound.

Please allow two working days for all repeat prescriptions. 

 

Medication Reviews

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.

 

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.
