Prescriptions

Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:

  • By Hand – drop your repeat slip in at reception with the required items clearly marked.
  • By Post – send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
  • Online – follow the link at the top of this page and carry out a simple registration.

In the interests of patient safety we do not accept requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications.

Please allow 48 hours (excluding weekends and Bank Holidays) between requesting and collecting your medication.   If you are requesting medication that is not on your regular repeat list, there may be a query on it and it may take longer than 48 hours to process. 

If you require pharmacy collection you should allow three days.

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.
