If you take regular medication the doctor may issue you with a slip to use when you request a repeat prescription. To order, simply mark the items required and drop it in to reception or post it to us.
Please note your doctor will review your medication periodically and may ask to see you before further prescriptions are issued.
Alternatively you can now order your medication online by following the link at the top of this page and carrying out a simple registration. Please note that this is currently simply an e-mail version of a written request and will still require 2 full working days notice.
We regret that telephone requests for repeat medication will not be accepted.
In some cases we can arrange for a prescription to be delivered to a chemist of your choice.
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please contact the surgery.
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.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge. There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS Website.
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.
