You can now order your repeat prescriptions online. In order to access this service please sign up for Appointments Online (by clicking the link above)
Once registered and logged into the Online website, you will see an option 'Repeat my Medication' on the menu on the right hand side. When you click on this please follow the instructions to select the items you want.
You may only choose from this list and should not use the message box to ask for any other medication. However if you take a regular medication that is not on the list please put a request in writing and drop it into the surgery.
If you do not wish to use the online service, you can order repeat medication by ticking the items required on the printed request sheet issued with your last prescription. Place the request sheet either in the box provided in the surgery or post enclosing a stamped addressed envelope if you wish your new prescription to be posted back to you, rather than you collect from the surgery by hand.
Your repeat prescription request will normally be ready within 48hrs but if there is a problem with your prescription or you are due a medication review this may take a little longer. On occasions the doctor may request to see you before a new script is issued.
Requests for medication cannot be taken over the telephone
Local chemists offer a collection service. If you would like to use this service please arrange this with the chemist of your choice and inform the surgery in writing.
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 14 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.
