Please allow three working days for your prescription to be ready.

Requests for repeat prescriptions are not accepted over the telephone. Repeat prescriptions will only be issued in conjunction with the repeat requests

Pharmacy Collection Service

Most pharmacies in the area now collect prescriptions from us on a daily basis. This means you can collect your prescription directly from the pharmacy without an extra return trip to the surgery. Please nominate your chosen pharmacy clearly on your repeat prescription form.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications. Notification of this should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

If you have been advised by the surgery that your medication review is due please complete the Medication Review form.

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.

NHS charges

you can find information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS prescription costs page.

Wasted Prescription Medication

Did you know that unused prescription medicines cost the NHS in the UK an estimated £300 million every year?

This could pay for:

  • 11,778 more community nurses
  • 80,906 more hip replacements
  • 19,799 more drug treatment courses for breast cancer
  • 300,000 more drug treatment courses for Alzheimer’s
  • 312,174 more cataract operations

by doing your part and only ordering what you need you are helping to reduce the cost of wasted medicines. this means these savings could be put towards other health services.

Please think before you order.
