Repeat prescriptions

Order Your Repeat Prescription Online

When ordering repeat medications we ask that you can give the practice 48-72 working hours notice of requiring a repeat medication.

Your prescriptions will be ready for collection after 2:00pm

We do not take requests over the phone at The Surgery. You need to either order via a pharmacy, online or by bringing in your request to the surgery. You need to register to use our online repeat prescription ordering service and this is best done in person at the surgery. Please speak to one of our receptionists.

We also provide prescriptions through our electronic prescribing service (EPS) which helps in the efficiency of the ordering process. If you would like to utilise this service, please contact the practice.

If your prescription is to be posted please allow enough time for postage and 3 working days for processing. We do not count weekends in the number of days.

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.
