Repeat prescriptions can be ordered in 4 ways:
- Ordering by post and enclosing a self-addressed envelope if you wish it to be posted back.
- Bringing the repeat prescription reorder form direct to the surgery and leaving it for processing, again with a self-addressed envelope if you wish it to be posted back to you.
- By hand delivery to the post box outside.
- Order Your Repeat Prescription Online
Please remember to allow three working days to get your repeat prescription ready.
We do not accept telephone requests for patient’s safety.
Prescriptions can be collected 72 hours after request (or three working days) or posted to you if a stamped addressed envelope is supplied.
Sometimes getting to the surgery to request a repeat prescription is not practical, so we have an online service you may use to request repeat prescriptions which have been set up by your doctor.
Please note, drugs which have not been set up for a repeat, which was given for a single episode of illness, or which need review cannot be supplied in this way. Remember, we need 72 working hours to process your request. Prescriptions can be collected from reception (unless you submit a stamped-addressed envelope that can be used to return it to you).
Please note only medicines that are currently on your repeat prescription form can be ordered in this way.
IF YOU SELECT A PHARMACY TO COLLECT A PRESCRIPTION FOR YOU, THEN PLEASE INFORM THE PHARMACY SO THEY CAN COLLECT IT FROM SURGERY – YOU SHOULD LEAVE AT LEAST 72 HOURS FOR THIS.
Chemist can collect your prescription and deliver
Repeat prescriptions can be picked up at the surgery during opening hours.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, 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 between requesting and collecting your medication.
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.
