We have a good working relationship with many local pharmacies who can collect prescriptions from the surgery and arrange delivery if required.
Please be advised that we are unable to accept repeat prescription orders on the phone. However, patients on long-term medication can request repeat prescriptions by dropping a note off at reception indicating the required items, by sending it in by post or ordering via pharmacy of choice. Please remember to include a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
For elderly and housebound patients, we can accept repeat prescription orders over the phone. If you have any queries, please feel free to contact the surgery.
Alternatively you can order online by following the link on this page and carrying out a simple registration.
Please allow 2 working days for prescription requests to be processed and ready for collection. You can help us in this respect by ordering in plenty of time and before you run out.
Patients on repeat medication will need to have their medication reviewed at least annually or as specified by the clinician. Please check your repeat prescription slip for the date your medication review is due. Patients can contact the reception desk to book for medication review
If you are unsure about any medication you take or require any further information regarding your medication, please feel free to ask your pharmacist.
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. If you prefer talking to someone, you can call the PPC order line on 0300 330 1341.
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.
