Patients on long term medication and approved by their doctor for repeat prescriptions can place orders in a number of ways.
We accept telephone requests however it is advisable to ring after 12:00 to avoid the busy morning period. Ask for prescriptions when you call and you will be put through to a dedicated member of staff. You can also use the repeat slip attached to your previous prescription and either drop it in at reception or post it to us.
Most local chemists offer a collection and delivery service. Please contact the chemist of your choice to arrange this, it is not something the receptionist is able to do for you.
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.
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 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
