If you are taking regular medication you can obtain repeat prescriptions via the receptionist. Allow 48 hours and collect after 2.00 pm or send a SAE and we will be pleased to post it to you.
Requests in writing only. We do not accept requests over the telephone.
Recording and printing your repeat prescriptions is a task done very nicely (and legibly!) by our computer.
Your Doctors, if asked, will write out a repeat prescription during the consultation, but they prefer not to spend your consulting time doing what is really an administrative task for the computer.
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 14 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 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
