Patients on regular repeat medication do not need to see the doctor for a prescription of their medicine unless a review is required.
You can request a repeat prescription by returning the tear off strip on the right hand side of the prescription to the surgery. Please tick the boxes against the medication you require. You may also post your request to the surgery. If you would like us to post your prescription back to you, please enclose a stamped addressed envelope.
To order online follow the link at the top of this page - you must register the first time you use the system.
Please allow two working days for prescriptions to be processed and signed before collection.
Some local chemists now offer a variety of repeat prescription services, including collection of the signed prescription from the surgery and a home delivery service for your medication. Please check with your preferred pharmacy which services they provide.
For patients safety we do not accept requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.
A post box for repeat prescriptions is situated on the surgery reception desk.
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 14 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.
