Requests for repeat prescriptions can be made in the following ways
Please note: We cannot accept requests for repeat prescriptions via the telephone.
We are unable to resolve queries on collected prescriptions after 6pm.
From 1st February 2018 – anyone collecting a Controlled Drug prescription on behalf of a patient must provide photo ID of that patient. Patients not know to reception staff will also be expected to provide photo ID when collecting Controlled Drug prescriptions.
Community pharmacy staff will be expected to show their workplace ID to verify that they are collecting prescriptions on behalf of the pharmacy.
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.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
From 12th March 2020 all prescriptions generated at the practice will be processed electronically. Please let us know your preferred pharmacy and your prescription will go straight there saving you a trip to the practice to pick it up!
If you don't have a nominated pharmacy, then when you come to the practice to collect your prescription you will receive a white paper 'token'. This token will have a barcode printed on it - the pharmacy will scan the barcode and they will be able to then dispense your prescription for you.
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 15 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.
