We will be closed from 13:00 today (23/05/18) for staff training. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
We are adding a new system for ordering repeat prescriptions. The old system will soon be phased out so please register for the new system as soon as possible. The new system offers integration with our clinical system for both prescription requests and on line appointment booking. To register for this service please bring a form of photo ID to the surgery and speak to a member of staff who will be able to help you
Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in the following ways:
Alternatively, several of the local pharmacies offer a collection service, whereby they will collect your prescription from us and dispense your medication ready for you to collect from the pharmacy.
If you have more than one repeat prescription try and request all of your items together.
If one or more of your medications are not visible when ordering please request them via the text box at the bottom of the screen. The medication may need reauthorising within our clinical system and so will not appear for reorder.
For patient safety, requests for repeat prescriptions cannot be taken over the telephone or via fax.
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.
Please allow Three full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
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.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 3 day, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
