Repeat prescriptions will be issued at the GP’s discretion and are normally for patients on long term treatment. Requests may be made by either leaving the right hand portion of the previous repeat prescription form issued at Reception or completing a request form available at Reception or by sending your request into the Practice with a stamped addressed envelope enclosed.
Repeat prescriptions can also be forwarded to the Pharmacy of your choice at your request.
We do not accept requests via the telephone.
Please allow two working days after submission of the repeat prescription request form before collecting prescriptions from the Group Practice. Please allow three working days after submission of the repeat prescription request form before collecting prescriptions from your preferred pharmacy.
Should you have any queries regarding your prescription please contact the surgery between 12.00pm – 4.00pm or contact your preferred pharmacy.
Local pharmacies offer repeat prescription services.
Please note: Where Postal requests are submitted please remember they have to be posted back to you therefore please enclose a stamped, addressed envelope or the practice will be unable to send this back to you.
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 Prescription charges
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.
