If your doctor has agreed for your long-term medication to be issued on a repeat prescription basis you can order in a number of ways
Please note: we cannot accept prescription requests over the telephone as this may lead to errors being made.
Prescriptions may be collected by you, your representative, or you may ask a pharmacist of your choice to collect your prescription and deliver your medication.
The practice now participates in the electronic prescription services (EPS). It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from. For more information on this service, please visit www.hscic.gov.uk/epspatients, your pharmacy or speak to the reception team.
If you are taking repeat prescriptions your medication will be regularly reviewed by a member of the clinical team. You may be invited to the surgery for an annual check, either at one of our long-term conditions review clinics or in general surgery. It is not always necessary for you to attend the surgery - please check with the receptionist before making an appointment. If you have any concerns regarding your medication, please feel free to contact us any time.
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 Choices website
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
