For patients on regular medications we offer a repeat prescription service. Either post, or hand into reception, the repeat item slip with the medications you need marked, or write on a slip of paper your name and the items you need.
Alternatively, take a request slip from the rack in the surgery entrance, complete it and place it in the box provided.
Please allow 48 hours for processing. Collection is after 2pm daily. If requesting prescription to be sent to a dispensary please allow another 24 hours for processing.
Alternatively, you can enclose a stamped addressed envelope and we will post your prescription back to you.
Many local pharmacies offer a collection service. Ask reception for details.
A “review date” on your prescription means a doctor will not issue another unless they have seen you, or spoken to you via telephone appointment before the date shown. Please always check your review date and allow yourself enough time.
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.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you will find it cheaper to buy a PPC from the chemist.
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.
