The fastest and quickest way of ordering is online:
email your request and online access can be set up for you:
Please include your full name, date of birth and selected pharmacy as there is no longer access to the surgery.
This mailbox is monitored daily and we will endeavour to process all queries and prescriptions as quickly as we can.
Acute medications may take longer as they will need to be authorised by a GP.
Your patience is greatly appreciated at the time.
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. These include:
This list is not exhaustive
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
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 15 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
