Repeat Prescriptions

Please note: we no longer accept requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.

(During the COVID-19 pandemic the practice will accept telephone requests where the patient cannot order online via Patient Access)

You may request a repeat prescription by:

  • Letter-please enclose a stamped self-addressed  envelope if you wish your prescription to  be posted back to you
  • Leaving a request in the repeat prescription box as you enter the surgery
  • Register to request repeat prescriptions online by completing the Register for Online Services form

Please give the name of the medication you require and allow 2 working days’ notice for the prescription to be ready for collection.

Do you get regular medicines?

Save time and help your GP practice, your pharmacy and the NHS by ordering your repeat prescriptions by using electronic repeat dispensing.

Medication Reviews

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.

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.

NHS charges

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 Prepaid Prescription Certicate.

There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS prescription costs page.
