How to order your Repeat Prescription
Repeat Prescriptions can be ordered in the following ways:
- By using the tear off portion of your last prescription, carefully marking the items required and forwarding it to the surgery.
If you cannot see the medication you are trying to order or if the medication is for a child under 18years, please ask a prescription question.
- We do not issue usernames and passwords for children under 18.
- We do not take requests for repeat medication over the phone unless you are housebound. This is due to safety reasons and also the high volume of calls this would create.
Please give us at least 2 working days notice when requesting a repeat prescription.
The NHS now requires us to ask patients to buy some items of medication.
Complete a medication review request.
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.
Please allow 2 full working days for repeat prescriptions to be processed and remember to take in to account weekends and bank holidays. Thank you.
Prescription 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.
The NHS prescription fees can be found on the NHS website.
There is also further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website.
