Repeat prescriptions can be requested on a monthly basis for chronic stable conditions for up to a maximum of 6 months. Beyond this period. a medical review is necessary and our receptionists can arrange a suitable appointment time upon request.
The patient will be given one reminder to book a review appointment with a member of our clinical team. If a patient is unable to arrange this appointment, they will be unable to obtain their medication until they have been reviewed by a GP or practice nurse.
If you are on a regular medication, you can request your new supply in one of the following ways:
We can only issue medications on the due date, we therefore ask you to double check the medications you are requesting prior to ordering them.
Please ensure that the items you require are requested clearly, by ticking the appropriate box on the repeat request form. If you do not have a repeat request form, please ask the receptionist to print a repeat card for you.
Prescriptions can then be collected at the front desk or they can be sent to your home if you send a stamped self-addressed envelope with the request.
We receive a high volume of prescription requests and therefore please note that 48 hours notice is required for repeat prescription requests.
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
If you order repeat prescriptions regularly, you can use the practice on line service. Please ask at the reception to register yourself for the on line service. After registering you can order prescriptions on line without coming to the surgery.
Please bring two forms of identification with you for registering.
