We require two working days to prepare your repeat prescription so please ensure you have enough medication to last. You can request a repeat by clicking the online ordering link above, ticking the computerised printout attached to your prescription, attending the surgery and filling out a form or faxing your request. If you require us to post it to you please enclose a stamped addressed envelope.
Please note that we are unable to accept repeat prescription requests over the phone to avoid confusion and the risk of mistakes being made.
If your medications are due for review (as indicated on the repeat slip) or you are asking for a new medication, your prescription may take more than two working days.
If you request your medications too early we may hold your request until your prescription is due. If you have requested your medication early because you are going away please let us know.
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.
For all NHS prescriptions charges please visit the NHS website.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
