For regular medications a repeat prescription service is available.
Please note - we do not accept requests by phone as this can cause errors.
Each repeat prescription is accompanied by an order form which you should keep for when you run low. To order more medication, tick the relevant box and return the form to us by post/in person. Remember to enclose a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
You can also order online via the link at the top of this page. If you wish to sign up for these online facilities ask the receptionist for details of how to register and receive your registration details.
The Practice uses electronic prescribing (EPS), this means prescriptions will be sent electronically straight to your named pharmacy, if you do not have a named pharmacy a “Token Prescription” will be issued that you can take to any pharmacy and they will then draw down your prescription electronically.
Please allow THREE full working days for routine prescriptions to be processed, additions and amendments will take longer.
Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
This service gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the healthcare professional you choose to get your medication from.
If you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit your GP Practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the pharmacy you choose, saving you time.
You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.
You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as there will be time for your repeat prescriptions to be ready before you arrive.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year, in their birthday month, 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.
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.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
- Prescription (per item): £9.00
- 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
- 3-month PPC: £29.10
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.
