Repeat Prescriptions

To order your repeat prescriptions please visit the Prescriptions and Medicines Centre.

Other Ways to Order Your Prescriptions

Alternatively, for repeat prescriptions you should indicate on the green tear off strip which items you require, then please hand your prescription requests to the receptionist (or put in the post box), post to the surgery (with SAE and allowing at least 1 week for return).

We do not take prescription requests over the telephone.

Repeat prescriptions will normally be ready for collection from the pharmacist of your choice or from the surgery.

Please allow 2 working days after from your request until the prescription is available.

A number of pharmacists collect prescriptions but this may take longer. Please indicate if you would like your prescription to go straight to the chemist and if so which one.

Prescriptions can now be sent electronically to your pharmacy of choice. Please note this still requires two working days from order to ability to collect at the pharmacy.

[NB. Lloyds Pharmacy (next door to the practice) is a separate business and not connected to the practice.]

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.
