Prescriptions

As per advise by CCG, Ordering of repeat prescriptions has changed, We no longer accept prescription requests from pharmacies.

When you need to re-order medication there are several options available:

  • Online – Registration required. Please contact the surgery for your online registration document
  • In person – drop the repeat slip attached to your last prescription in at reception having clearly marked the items required.
  • By post – send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
  • By using your local pharmacy – If you are vulnerable/ housebound patient speak to your local pharmacy and will they can arrange collection and or delivery of your medication.

Please remember to order sufficient medication to last you the next 28 days.

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

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 and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

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.
