Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in the following ways:
We have the facility to send your prescriptions electronically to any chemist you nominate, you just need to order your prescription as normal with the surgery and go to your nominated chemist 2 working days later to collect your medication, ask your usual chemist about this service.
Many chemists will collect prescriptions from the surgery and deliver your medication to your home. You can contact your local chemist to discuss this arrangement.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor 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
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
The surgery introduced electronic prescribing from the first week in October. This will mean once you have ordered your prescription it can be sent electronically to your chemist of choice providing you have nominated them before you request the prescription, this means you will no longer need to come to the surgery to collect a prescription. This does not mean we wont be issuing any prescriptions as we understand not everyone will want to participate, but we are trying to ensure our patients have access to as much choice as possible.
Patients can order there prescriptions via our clinical system, for this each patient will need login details which can be issued at the surgery by our reception staff.
