Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions

We are now doing Repeat Prescriptions via email [email protected] and through Patient Access.

The form which the surgery used to use has had to be removed as it was no longer compatible with the current IT infrastructure.

If you need a repeat prescription please tick which items you require on the prescription tear off slip. You can request this by either post or at the desk or through your pharmacy of choice. Please note we can process prescriptions electronically, this means that your prescription will be sent to the pharmacy electronically, all you have to do is sign a form at the pharmacy that is your choice.

Prescriptions are ready to collect after 48 hours (working hours).

Please do not ask for same day prescriptions unless in an emergency.  It is up to the patient to monitor medication and allow enough time for the prescription to be processed before your medication runs out.

Please do not order repeat prescriptions too early. Requests for repeat prescriptions will not be accepted over the telephone. Repeats will also not be given out to anyone under the age of 16.

Requesting a Prescription Online

You can email [email protected] with your full name, date of birth and clearly state the medication you require. Alternatively, you can request a repeat prescription online via Patient Access.   Please allow 48 hours before collecting your prescription.

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

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.
