If you are on long-term medication you will be given a computerised prescription re-ordering slip. This allows you to re-order repeat medication without seeing the doctor every time.
You can order in the following ways:
We do not accept requests for prescriptions on the telephone as this can lead to mistakes.
Please note there are certain medications which will not be prescribed without the patient first having seen the doctor.
We are pleased to announce that we are involved in EPS. Once you nominate a pharmacy we can electronically send your prescription to them - saving you a trip to the surgery. For further information, please speak to your pharmacist.
After a specified number of repeats, you will be required to see the doctor or the nurse for review and any monitoring tests to ensure that all is well before further prescriptions are issued. Any inconvenience caused by this is regretted, but we feel this policy is essential to ensure medications and your condition is monitored safely.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
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
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
