Repeat Prescriptions

If you are on regular medication and your doctor feels your medication can be repeated without you being seen each time, you will be given a repeat prescription slip.

Either hand the slip to the receptionist or post it with a stamped addressed envelope. Alternatively you can order online by going to:

We can only accept repeat prescription requests for items which have been previously agreed by the doctor to be suitable for repeat prescription ordering, and for which you have not yet used up all your quota of issues before the doctor needs to review your medication. In these circumstances we shall usually be able to meet your request but sometimes even so there may be reasons why we cannot issue a repeat prescription for some or all of the items. The receptionist will explain when you call to collect the prescription.

Receptionists cannot accept telephone requests for repeat prescriptions.
You can order your repeat prescription via our website but we cannot reply to e-mail enquiries or requests for anything other than prescriptions. For all enquiries contact the surgery by telephone or call in to reception.

Please allow three full working days for prescriptions to be processed.

Prescription Fees

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.
