You can now order repeat prescriptions online via the above link. In order to use this service you must have previously obtained the necessary security access codes. Please call at reception for details. Please bring a photo I.D.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to a recent change in our clinical systems any patient who uses our online services will need to contact the surgery to arrange a new password. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
Repeat prescriptions may also be obtained by completing the right hand side of your previous prescription and returning it to the surgery.
Home delivery of medication can be arranged, where appropriate, through your local pharmacy. Please note that this arrangement needs to be set up between patient and 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.
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
