Repeat medications can be requested by marking the relevant medications on the repeat prescription script and handing this back to reception. Alternatively these scripts can be dropped into the repeat prescriptions box located by reception. Please return the form via person, by post or by fax. Please note, we DO NOT accept telephone requests for repeat prescriptions.
You may also send a stamped, self-addressed envelope should you wish to have your prescriptions posted to you.
Medication that is requested which is not on your repeat medications list must be discussed with a GP first by phone or by consultation.
We also offer on-line ordering of repeat prescriptions and EPS. Please speak to reception to register for these services.
Requests take 48 hours to process.
Please note we do not accept repeat prescription requests from pharmacies unless discussed with the practice.
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.
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.
