Repeat prescriptions
We have a 3 ways that patients can order their repeat prescriptions.

  1. Online
  2. Repeat slip to be brought into the Surgery
  3. Over the telephone
Online
To request your repeat prescription online please click on the Patient Access button below in the box. You can also use this link to book/cancel any appointments.
Patients who wish to use our online services will need to drop by the Surgery and ask at reception for an online access printout. This printout will be different for each patient; this will give you a username and password to be able to register for this system.

 
Repeat Slip
When collecting your prescription attached you will have a repeat slip, this can be filled in and handed into the Surgery. On the right side of the Surgery desk there is a repeat prescription box which you can put your prescriptions into, we will then empty the box throughout the day and process these prescriptions.

Over the Phone
We do take prescription requests over the telephone for those who are unable to use the website or drop off their repeat request. However, we don’t accept repeat prescriptions over the phone on a Monday as this is one of our extremely busy days.

 
Please allow 48 hours for all repeat prescriptions to be completed.

Prescription 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 those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who have a lot of medication.

 

Prescription Charges:
Prescription (per item): £9.00
3 month prepayment: £29.10
12 month prepayment: £104.00

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 prepayment card.
There is further information and how to get one on the NHS Website.
