We do not take repeat prescription requests by telephone to avoid errors.
It may be convenient for you to instruct your chemist to collect your prescription for you and you should arrange this directly with them. Some pharmacies will deliver to housebound patients.
If you have lost your repeat request counterfoil please write your name and address and the name of your medication on a piece of paper and hand it to the reception team or put through the practice letter box if we are closed.
Patients on repeat medications may be asked to see a doctor.
You must always allow at least two working days for your prescription to be processed and longer at busy times such as Christmas, Easter and Bank Holidays.
If your repeat prescription is sent to a chemist/pharmacy for delivery to, or collection by, yourself, you may need to extend the two day processing times. Please contact your chemist/pharmacy for advice on their collection schedules from the surgery.
If you leave your request on Friday afternoon or Saturday morning it may not be ready for collection until Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday.
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.
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
