A repeat prescription is medication that you have been given for a period of time, or for long-term use. 48 hours notice is required for a prescription. You can either order your prescription in person by handing in the printed computer slip into reception or you can send your prescription request to the surgery address.
Alternatively, you can order your repeat prescription directly through this site. Click on the link above and complete the simple registration form.
Prescriptions may be collected from the surgery, by a chemist of your choice or can be posted via a stamped addressed envelope provided by the patient. If you wish the chemist to deliver your medicine, you must arrange this with them yourself.
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 14 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
